Burlington GO Station Improvements

We're Improving Your Station!

We’re enhancing accessibility and updating amenities to make it easier for you to access GO Services.

What's Changing

Starting Monday October 26, 2020 there will be construction at your station, which will mean temporary changes to how you get on the GO. Please remember to give yourself extra time to get to where you are going. Here’s what you need to know:

Elevator Upgrades

The elevators at Burlington GO will be out of service until early 2021 while we carry out important upgrades. The elevators are reaching the end of their lifespan and these updates will make them more efficient and reliable.

There will be no access to or from train platforms while elevators are being upgraded.

If you need the an elevator to get on the GO, here are your options:

If you need the elevators to access Burlington GO, you can go to Appleby GO or Aldershot  GO stations instead.

  • Appleby GO is located east of Burlington GO, at 5111 Fairview St., near the QEW and Appleby Line.
  • Aldershot GO is west of Burlington GO, at 1199 Waterdown Road, near Highway 403 and Waterdown Road.
  • You can be dropped off, carpool or take a Burlington Transit bus to both stations.

If you need assistance to get to one of these stations, you can register for our accessible shuttle service by calling GO Transit at 416-869-3200 or 1-888-438-6646 (toll free). You can also request a paper copy of the request form from a Station Attendant. Requests should be made 48 hours in advance of travel.

The elevator in the north parking structure will still be available during construction.

Secure Bike Room

Construction work will also happen in preparation for a secure bike room, which will be installed spring 2021. This work will not impact your journey on GO.

We appreciate your patience at this time.

What's Next

We expect all upgrades to be complete by spring, 2021.

How You'll Benefit

These upgrades are work we are carrying out as part of GO Expansion, to enhance and maintain the safety and accessibility of our existing stations.

GO Expansion will increase the frequency and number of GO trains across the rail network, reduce congestion and connect a growing region with fast, reliable transit options to get you where you need to go. At your station this means you’ll benefit from:

  • Upgraded elevators, which will improve reliability and ensure everyone has consistent access to the platform.
  • New secure bike rooms, which will become part of our reserved bike program.
