The pick-up drop-off area on the north side of Eglinton GO station is moving to just west of the station building.
Here’s what you need to know about the new passenger pick-up and drop-off area on the north side of Eglinton GO:
- The entrance from Eglinton Ave. E has not changed. However, instead of going straight, you will turn right (west) into the new area.
- The pedestrian access to platform 1 from the old pick-up drop-off area will close and a new access point from the new passenger pick-up and drop-off area will open. The existing access to platform 1 by the east pedestrian tunnel will also remain open.
- The ticket vending machine in front of the station building will remain accessible.
- There will be two PRESTO payment devices by the new platform 1 walkway for tapping on and off.
- Access to platform 3 from the north side of the station is through the east pedestrian tunnel. Platform 3 can also be accessed more directly from the south side of the station via Bellamy Rd. South.
- Please follow directional signs and be cautious near and around construction areas.
Please be extra cautious when you are on the station platforms, as both platforms have been temporarily reduced in width for ongoing construction. Please follow the posted warning signs and only stand in the wider sections of the platform until your train has arrived and stopped. Please stay clear of the yellow lines. This station remains unable to service customers who use wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Please follow directional signs and be cautious near and around construction areas.
Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your station and make it more accessible in the future.
Station Access and Parking
Changes to parking and how you access the station will be in effect over the course of the project.

- To access the north platform from the south parking lot, customers can use the east tunnel on the south platform.
- There are approximately 60 parking spaces closed in the south parking lot.
- Accessible parking spaces have been relocated to two locations in the south parking lot.
- Plenty of parking is still available at the station.
- The south platform remains accessible through the east access path from the south parking lot.
- As some paths have changed, please follow construction signs to access your platform.
- The bike shelter has been relocated slightly to the east in the south parking lot.
How You Will Benefit
GO Expansion will bring more frequent two-way, all-day service to the Lakeshore East line to enable better connections and travel opportunities, and these upgrades to Eglinton GO Station are a key step in ensuring station accessibility for all GO customers.
- Construction beginning on the accessibility upgrades at Eglinton GO is just one example of how GO Expansion is making progress in your communities.
- These upgrades show Metrolinx’s commitment to following through on the Metrolinx Multi-Year Accessibility Plan 2018-2022, and ensuring accessible access to our stations for all our passengers.
- Metrolinx is building a transit system for years to come. That is why we are keeping our promise to move forward with more frequent, two-way, all-day service on the Lakeshore East line, improving access and convenience for the people of Ontario for generations to come.
Accessibility upgrades at Eglinton GO Station will support the 251,000 GO customer boardings at this station per year, as well as prepare the station to support increased two-way, all-day service in years to come.
- Works to upgrade Eglinton GO Station and make it fully accessible will include: two new tunnels, stairwells and elevators to platforms, mini-platforms to enable boarding and exiting accessibility coaches, tactile edge tiles, new ramps, digital signage and rehabilitation of the pick-up/drop-off zone (Kiss & Ride).
- During construction, GO customers might have a different experience at Eglinton GO than what they are used to. Changes to services and the station are all part of the project to ensure the station can remain open during these upgrades, to continue serving our passengers for the duration of construction.
- On some weekends, construction will operate overnight and one of the two GO rail tracks might be closed for construction work. These weekend works have been planned to ensure that GO customers can use Eglinton GO Station as normally as possible on weekdays, when many people rely on this station for their commutes to and from work.
These accessibility upgrades are the second phase of a two-phase project that was initiated to provide full passenger accessibility to the station building, side platforms, north and south parking lots, and the pick-up/drop-off area (Kiss & Ride).
- Construction is expected to be completed, offering customers a fully accessible Eglinton GO Station, as early as Summer 2024.
- These investments, and GO Expansion as a whole, are critical to transform the GO rail network into a comprehensive, all‐day rapid transit network.
- GO Transit is committed to keeping you up-to-date on any changes to how you might use or access the station, platform, or nearby park.
