Important changes to how you access the station starting September 13:

Starting Monday, September 13 there will be changes to how you access your station as construction to enhance accessibility and safety features progresses. The new GO station building, featuring a new tunnel connection, and a new parking garage complete with 2,059 parking spaces will open for you to use. Here is what you need to know:

Outdoor north parking lot 

  • All outdoor parking spaces in the north parking lot will be closed. Please park your vehicle in the new parking garage on the north side of the station or in the south parking lot off Advance Boulevard.
  • The entrance and exit lanes to and from Bramalea Road will remain closed for construction on a new signalized intersection. Please use the entrance and exit lanes at Steeles Avenue instead. 

How to access the new parking garage, GO station building and east tunnel

  • Drive into the north parking lot from Steeles Avenue and follow signs to the parking garage.
  • Take the stairs or elevators to the first level of the parking garage. 
  • Once on the first level of the parking garage follow the convenient indoor connection to the new GO station building.
  • Once in the new GO station building, take the stairs or elevator to the new station building (east) tunnel to get to the train platforms.
  • The elevator on the east end of the island (north) platform will be out of service. If you have accessibility needs, please use the elevator on the west end of the island (north) platform.
  • The new GO station building includes PRESTO payment devices, ticket vending machines and add value machines as well as a ticket booth.  

How to access the new GO station building from the bus loop

  • Follow signs to use the temporary pedestrian walkway from the bus loop to the new GO station building and parking garage. 

Accessible and reserved parking

  • Accessible and reserved parking spaces will move from the northwest parking lot to the first level of the parking garage, where your vehicle will be protected from the weather and you’ll have direct access to the new GO station building. 
  • Parking spaces including accessible parking spaces are also available in the south parking lot. 

New elevator on the south platform

  • The new elevator on the west side of the south platform will be in-service for you to use. The station will be accessible from the north and south parking lots.  

New Passenger Pick-Up and Drop-Off (Kiss & Ride)

  • Use the open portion of the new Passenger Pick-Up and Drop-Off (Kiss & Ride) located in front of the new GO station building. We’ve fenced off the previous Passenger Pick-Up and Drop-Off (Kiss & Ride) while construction takes place. 

Platform upgrades

  • Upgrades to both platforms are complete and the platforms will be fully open for your convenience. 

Please be careful around the fenced off areas until this work is complete later in the winter.

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. 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 

The demolition of the former GO station building will take place later in September.

We are building a new bus loop and bus platforms, which will be located behind the new station building and are expected to be ready later this winter.

Starting in the fall and into winter 2021, we will be working on north parking lot redevelopment, the new signalized intersection at Bramalea Road and upgrades to the Steeles Avenue intersection.

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

  • Improved bus platforms for GO Transit and Brampton Transit, with a dedicated Züm bus loop
  • Covered bike parking
