Exhibition GO Station Improvements




We're Transforming Your Station!

Shovels are officially in the ground for the Ontario Line at Exhibition GO Station. This station will be a vital transit hub for Ontario Line, GO and TTC customers and is sure to be one of the most popular Ontario Line stations with 12,100 customers passing through during the busiest travel hour by 2041.

We’re building a temporary pedestrian bridge

Starting Tuesday, May 10, preparations will take place on the east side of the south platform to build foundation elements for the south tower, which will connect to the future temporary pedestrian bridge at your station. Here is what you need to know:

  • The shelter on the east side of the south platform will be removed to make space for this work and accommodate the new south tower. You can use the shelter further west on the south platform.
  • Please be careful around construction and make your way around the fenced off area on the south platform to get to where you need to go. 

This phase of work is expected to be complete in early summer.

The next phase of work on the temporary pedestrian bridge will take place on the north side of the station and will begin as early as this fall.  

Construction of the temporary pedestrian bridge is part of the preliminary work we are doing to bring the Ontario Line to Exhibition GO station and is expected to be complete in spring 2023. 

We're upgrading the platforms

Preliminary work to upgrade the south and north platforms on the east side is underway to prepare for future Ontario Line construction. This will not impact how you board and exit your train. Please be careful around construction equipment and fencing.

Here is what you need to know:

  • We are temporarily shifting the south platform further east to serve GO trains, while we make space for Ontario Line construction further west. 
  • We are removing the north platform to make space for a new Ontario Line and GO platform on the north side of the station.   
  • Construction to upgrade the platforms is expected to move to the west side of the south platform later this spring, and the west side of the north platform later this fall. You will still be able to access the platforms at your station during construction.
  • You may notice plywood on small sections of both platforms. It is there to keep you safe while we install underground utilities in these areas overnight. 
  • Preliminary work is expected to take approximately one year to complete, at which time construction to build the new Ontario Line at your station will begin.
