Bramalea GO Station Improvements



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.

What's Changing

We’re making progress at your station! In February, we opened the east end of the island platform and closed the west end. This will mean some temporary changes to how you board the train.

At Bramalea GO

  • Look for signs to show you where to stand and remember to spread out along the platform to help keep us on time.
  • A temporary accessible ramp is available for you to use on the east end of the island platform near the elevator. 
  • Due to recent service changes, you may have to adjust where you normally board your train. Some coaches will not open from outside of the train.  Please spread out along the platform and keep the accessibility coach available for those who need it most.

At Union Station

  • Be sure to listen to the announcements on the train that will let you know which cars open at Bramalea GO.

No elevator access from south platform

We’re more than halfway done building the new south platform. Use the east end of the south platform to board your train until this work is complete at the end of the year.

  • The following trips only open on the south platform:
    • Eastbound train departures: 7:55 a.m., 8:27 a.m., 6:14 p.m. and 7:14 p.m.
    • Westbound train arrivals: 5:10 p.m. and 6:21 p.m.
  • Do not use the south platform if you need an elevator to access the station building, bus loop or parking lot on the north side. There are no elevators in service from the south platform.
  • If you want to catch one of these trips, please use the south parking lot off Alfred Kuehne Boulevard.

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 expect to finish improving the platforms before the end of the year. When we’re finished, the platforms will feature a snow-melt system that will safely clear the platform of snow and ice, overhead canopies to protect you from the weather, and the capacity to fit 12-car trains.
  • The future parking garage is starting to take shape. We expect to be done the structural work this spring, and the parking garage should be open by spring 2021.Once complete, the second floor of the parking garage will provide you with direct access to Bramalea Road East.
  • Over the next six months, we’re going to install multiple elevators to make the platforms and parking garage accessible.


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-melt system that will clear the platform of snow and ice, canopies to protect you from weather elements 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.
