It’s Time to Transform Your Station!
Major improvements are coming to Bramalea GO Station. We're adding parking, updating amenities, enhancing accessibility and creating more connections.

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
- Secure bicycle storage
- 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
Starting November 21, 2018, over 650 temporary parking spaces will be available to replace rotating parking closures during construction. You can access this lot from the east side of Bramalea Road. From there you can reach the station by a protected pedestrian walkway that goes under Bramalea Road.
Starting December 1, 2018, we will close 250 parking spaces in the north parking lot, next to Steeles Avenue, while we work on underground utilities before we start construction on the new parking garage. These spaces will re-open in the new year. More parking closures will be required as construction of the parking garage continues.
Here is how your station is changing:

In the western section of the north lot, 170 parking spaces remain closed while we build a space for buses to pick up and drop off passengers throughout the project, as the current bus loop is located where the new station will go. We are also excavating a new accessible tunnel.
The east half of the island platform is being upgraded before we improve the other side next year. We are also continuing to work on the south platform.
We expect that new station amenities will open in 2021.
We’ll keep you informed throughout this project. To get updates sent directly to your inbox or phone, sign up for Bramalea On the GO alerts at onthegoalerts.gotransit.com. You can also follow the Kitchener line on Twitter @GOtransitKT.
