We're Transforming Your Station!
Major improvements are coming to Bramalea GO Station. We're adding parking, updating amenities, enhancing accessibility and creating more connections.
We’re making several changes to your station so we can continue to make improvements and keep you safe.
Starting November 2, we will start construction on your new station building. This means the relocation of 42 reserved parking spaces farther north in the main parking lot.

Parking spots are available at the Canadian Tire parking lot across Bramalea Road. Please use the temporary lot until we finish improving your station.
Here’s how you can access it:
- Traveling northbound on Bramalea Rd: turn right into the lot, just south of Steeles Ave. (opposite the Bramalea entrance to the station)
- Traveling southbound on Bramalea Rd: turn left into the lot just south of Steeles Ave. (opposite the Bramalea entrance to the station)
- Traveling eastbound on Steeles Ave: turn right into the Canadian Tire Gas Bar, just east of Bramalea Rd., then drive south into the temporary lot
- Traveling westbound on Steeles Ave: turn left onto Bramalea Rd., then left into the temporary lot (opposite the Bramalea entrance to the station)
Follow the orange GO Transit signage to the protected walkway that will lead you to the station. It will take you under Bramalea Rd. to the east end of the bus loop.
Important information about accessible service at Bramalea GO station
- A temporary platform on the south side of the station is used for certain trips throughout the day. This platform does not have elevator access to the north side of the station.
- Six trips during the day open on the temporary platform. If you need an elevator, do not take the following trips.
- Eastbound train departures: 7:55 a.m., 8:27 a.m., 6:14 p.m. and 7:14 pm. Westbound train arrivals: 4:32 p.m. and 6:21 p.m.
- Only certain coaches, including the accessible coach, will open on this platform. Please listen to announcements on your train. If you’re unsure if you’re in the right place, you can speak to your customer service ambassador.
- All other trains will depart from and arrive on the regular platform, which has elevator access to the station building, north parking lot and bus loop.
You have options to get to the GO. Learn about your walking, transit, cycling or carpooling options during construction.

- We’ve received the concrete blocks needed to build the new parking structure. In the next few months, you’ll start to see it take shape.
- In the winter, we’re going to start installing three new elevators to make the south parking lot more accessible.
As of now, we’ve made the following progress:
- A new temporary platform has opened on the south platform, just west of the current one. By moving this platform we can keep working on building the permanent south platform.
- All of the underground utilities needed for the new parking garage and station building are now within the station property and are ready to be connected once the structures are complete.
- We’ve poured most of the foundation of your parking garage.
- We’ve excavated the west tunnel and installed staircases. We are now installing infrastructure to support three new elevators and build the access building.
- We’ve built the frames for new platform canopies at the east end of the island and south platforms and installed electrical systems for upgraded safety and security amenities.
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 close to 1,300 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
- Bike storage room
- 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-melting system, canopies and capacity for 12-car trains
We expect that new station amenities will open in 2021.
These improvements support GO expansion plans for more frequent, reliable service on the Kitchener line. Learn more about plans for Kitchener GO expansion.
