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

Entrance and exit lanes to station from Bramalea Road closed starting February 22

Starting Monday, February 22, the entrance and exit lanes to the station from Bramalea Road will be closed while we carry out important upgrades in the north parking lot. Here is what you need to know:

  • 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.

There are no changes to the south parking lot entrance and exit lanes.

Once complete later this spring, the north parking lot will include new curbs, asphalt, upgraded lighting, closed circuit cameras and emergency call boxes.

Northeast corner of the north parking lot closed

The northeast corner of the north parking lot, beside Bramalea Road and Steeles Avenue, is closed until spring 2021. Our contractor is completing underground work, curb repairs, re-paving and installing light poles.

Bus stops 15 and 16 at the northeast corner of the north parking lot remain open and available for you.

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

Canadian Tire parking lot and pedestrian path closed

The pedestrian path from the Canadian Tire parking lot to your station is closed. Our contractor is working on demolishing the east tunnel access building and connecting the east tunnel to the new GO station building.

The Canadian Tire parking lot is closed as well. It is expected to open again in the spring.

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.

Platform access

The east side of the island platform is closed while we work on important upgrades. 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 repair 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.

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.


Travelling here

Parking spots are available at the Canadian Tire parking lot across Bramalea Road. Please use the temporary lot until we finish improving your 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

You have options to get to the GO. Learn about your walking, transit, cycling or carpooling options during construction.

What's Next

  • We’ve finished important upgrades on the south platform and upgrades on the island platform are expected to be complete this spring.
  • The south platform now has a snow-melt system that helps keep the platform clear of snow and ice and overhead canopies and shelters to protect you from the weather. The platform has also been expanded to accommodate 12-car trains. Once we finish construction on the island platform, the platform will feature the same upgrades as the south platform does now.
  • The future parking garage is starting to take shape. We’ve finished the structural work last year, and the parking garage should be open by this spring. Once complete, the second floor of the parking garage will provide you with a direct exit to Bramalea Road.
  • Over the next several months, we’re going to install multiple elevators to make the platforms and parking garage accessible.
  • The new station building is up and fully enclosed. Interior work is happening now.


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
  • 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.

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.
