Lane reduction

Starting Saturday, January 29, the entrance into the station from the Steeles Avenue intersection will be reduced to one lane. We need additional space to install canopies for the new Züm bus platforms.

Please obey directional signs in the area. The lane reduction is expected to be in place until construction is complete later this spring.

New Bus Loop Location

There are changes to how you access the temporary bus loop at the station while important construction work to build new permanent bus platforms takes place.  

Here is what you need to know to get on the GO:

  • Go to the new temporary bus loop location in front of the GO station building to board GO Transit and Brampton Transit buses. The current temporary bus loop including all bus platforms on the west side of the station will be closed for construction. 
  • Check bus platform signs before you board your bus and review the list of bus platform changes below. Your bus platform number may change.
    • GO bus route 30 westbound will continue to serve bus platform 8.
    • GO bus route 31 eastbound previously serving bus platform 12 will serve bus platform 14.
    • GO bus route 31 westbound previously serving bus platform 12 will serve bus platform 11.
    • GO bus route 32 eastbound previously serving bus platform 12 will serve bus platform 14.
    • GO bus route 32 westbound previously serving bus platform 12 will serve bus platform 11.
    • GO bus route 36 eastbound previously serving bus platform 5 will serve bus platform 7.
    • GO bus route 36 westbound will continue to serve bus platform 8.
    • GO bus routes 41 and 47 westbound previously serving bus platform 10 will serve bus platform 6.
    • GO bus routes 46, 48, 56 westbound previously serving bus platform 9 will serve bus platform 5.
    • GO bus routes 41, 47, 48, and 56 eastbound previously serving bus platform 11 will serve bus platform 16.
    • Brampton Transit bus route 13 northbound previously serving bus platform 7 will serve bus platform 10.
    • Brampton Transit bus route 16 northbound previously serving bus platform 7 will serve bus platform 9.
    • Brampton Transit bus route 15/A northbound previously serving bus platform 13 will serve bus platform 12.
    • Brampton Transit bus route 15/40 southbound previously serving bus platform 6/14 will serve bus platform 13.

  • Use new pedestrian paths from Steeles Avenue East, the GO station building and parking garage to get to and from the new temporary bus loop. 

The new temporary bus loop location is expected to be in place until major construction is complete later next spring, and at that time permanent bus platforms will open and dedicated bus-only lanes from Steeles Avenue East and Bramalea Road will be available to ensure all vehicles can enter and exit the station safely.

South Platform Construction

Construction crews are working to prepare the south platform to be widened at Bramalea GO station. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Forty parking spaces along the eastern edge of the south parking lot are closed for construction. There are still plenty of parking spaces available for you to use.
  • In the south parking lot, the two eastern lanes in the Kiss & Ride area are closed. We need this space for construction vehicles to make their way to the construction site. You can use the remaining six open Kiss & Ride lanes.
  • The south platform is still open for you to use. There is a fence on the south edge of the south platform to separate the construction area. Access to the south platform from the south parking lot is not affected.
  • Work to extend the west tunnel is expected to start early next year.

Please be careful around construction equipment and fencing until this work is complete in spring 2022.

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 new GO station building, featuring a new tunnel connection and a new parking garage is complete and the new amenities are open for you to use. 
  • 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 lets you know how many parking spaces are available at each of the six parking levels.
    • LED lights 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).
    • At night motion detection lights up the parking garage to save energy. 
    • 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. We have also completed 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.


What's Next 

During winter 2022 we are continuing to work on north parking lot redevelopment, the new signalized intersection at Bramalea Road and upgrades to the Steeles Avenue East intersection. These improvements support GO Expansion plans for more frequent, reliable service on the Kitchener line. 

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 space
  • Improved access to Bramalea Road
  • New accessible pedestrian tunnel at the west end of the station and a new accessible pedestrian tunnel linked to the new station building   
  • 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.
