Limited accessible parking in the north lot

Approximately eight accessible parking spaces are closed in the north lot for construction. Our construction crews need this space to build the new Kiss & Ride in front of what will be the new GO Station building. There is still plenty of parking at the station including accessible parking spaces.

Bramalea Road

The entrance and exit lanes to the station from Bramalea Road are closed while we carry out important upgrades in the north parking lot. 

  • Use the entrance and exit lanes at the Steeles Avenue signalized intersection to drive into and out of the station
  • Brampton Transit 115 Airport Express buses will stop at their usual location on Bramalea Road. 
    • Use the temporary pedestrian path to the Steeles Avenue bus loop entrance/exit to get to and from the station.
    • Directional signs will be in the area to help you along your way.
    • This will add about five minutes to your commute.

Platform upgrades

  • The east side of the island (north) platform is closed while we complete minor repairs to the pavement. Please continue to use the west side of the island (north) platform to board your train.
  • The south platform, from the stairs to the new west tunnel all the way to the east end of the platform, is closed while we complete minor repairs to the pavement.

At Bramalea GO

  • Look for signs to show you where to stand and remember to spread out along the west side of the platform to help keep everyone safe.
  • If you need the accessibility coach on the train, please wait at the accessibility ramp to board.

At Union Station

  • If you need to use the accessible ramp, ask the customer service ambassador in the accessible coach for assistance.

Northeast parking lot closed

The northeast parking lot, beside Bramalea Road and Steeles Avenue, is closed until later this summer. Our contractor is completing re-paving work.

Bus stops 15 and 16 at the northeast parking lot remains open and available for you.

There is still plenty of parking at the station for you including reserved and accessible spaces.

Tunnel access

  • The east tunnel is closed while we work to connect the tunnel to the new station building. 
  • If you arrive at the station in the north parking lot, please use the walkway to the new West Tunnel Access Building connecting to the new west tunnel, to get to the train platforms. 
  • PRESTO Fare Payment Devices are available inside the new West Tunnel Access Building for you to use.
  • If you arrive at the station in the south parking lot, you can continue to use the walkway to get to the south platform.

Elevator access

  • The elevator in the West Tunnel Access Building connecting to the west tunnel is in service. 
  • The elevator in the west tunnel connecting to the west side of the island platform is in service.
  • There is NO elevator access from the south platform to the island platform, north parking lot, station building, bus loop, and Kiss & Ride; however, you can use the stairs on the west side of the south platform to get to the new west tunnel which connects to these amenities.
  • If you have accessibility needs, please access the station through the north parking lot and use the elevators at the west end to get to the island platform. 

Please be careful around the fenced off areas until this work is complete later next year.

We're Making Progress

  • For more than two years, crews have been busy on improvements, including a new parking garage, enhanced accessibility and safety features to create a better customer experience – with more connections.
  • Major construction on the parking garage is now complete. The parking garage is one of the biggest on the entire Metrolinx network, with the capacity to accommodate 2,059 vehicles.
    • We’ve added more than 100 security cameras for your safety.
      A car-counting system will let you know how many parking spaces are available at each of the six parking levels.
    • LED lights will identify which parking spaces are available to use (green), which spaces are not available to use (red), and which spaces are designated for accessibility use (blue).
    • We are building a third parking garage exit for your convenience. The new exit ramp will be on the second level of the parking garage and will offer you direct access to Bramalea Road from the parking garage.
  • We’ve finished important upgrades on the south platform and island (north) platform. Next, we will complete minor repairs to the pavement on both platforms. Both platforms now have a snow-melt system that helps keep the platforms clear of snow and ice, overhead canopies, shelters to protect you from the weather, and tactile yellow safety tiles to remind you how far back to stand. Both platforms can now also accommodate 12-car trains. 
  • Construction on the northeast parking lot is progressing and we have completed underground work to install utilities. 


How You Will Benefit

This transformation will make it easier to access your station and bring you more service. Here’s what we have planned:

  • A new station building linked to a parking garage, adding 2,059 spaces
  • A new passenger pick-up and drop-off area (Kiss & Ride)
  • Improved bus platforms for GO Transit and Brampton Transit, with a dedicated Züm bus loop
  • Covered bike parking
  • New retail spaces
  • Improved access to Bramalea Road
  • New accessible pedestrian tunnel at the west end of the station 
  • Enhanced safety features including new emergency call systems and upgraded lighting
  • Platform improvements with a snow-melt system that will clear the platform of snow and ice, canopies to protect you from weather. The platforms will also be expanded to accommodate 12-car trains.

These improvements support GO expansion plans for more frequent, reliable service on the Kitchener line. Learn more about plans for Kitchener GO expansion.
