Platform and boarding restrictions start October 3

Starting Monday, October 3, construction at your station will mean you can only board and exit your train on the west end of Platform 4 (south platform).  The east end of Platform 4 will be closed.

Here’s what you need to know:

When boarding at Exhibition GO:

  • You will only be able to board on the west end of Platform 4 (south platform). The east end of the platform will be closed for construction. 
  • Look for signs to show you where to wait and please spread out along the available space.
  • The accessible ramp and coach will be available at all times throughout construction.
  • There will be small areas on the south side of the station blocked off. We need these areas to store construction equipment.
  • One PRESTO payment device will be unavailable. Please use the alternative PRESTO payment devices nearby.
  • Please give yourself extra time.
  • The north platform will remain open.

When exiting at Exhibition GO:

  • Not all train coaches will open when you arrive at Exhibition GO. You will only be able to exit from coaches that open to the west end of Platform 4 (south platform).
  • Please listen carefully to announcements on your train to confirm what coaches will open when you arrive at your station. 
  • Check out our boarding graphic below to see which coaches will be opening at Exhibition GO. 
  • The accessible ramp and coach will be available at all times throughout construction. 

Construction on the south platform includes building the foundation needed for the future temporary pedestrian bridge as well as the installation of new curbs, a shelter to protect you from the weather, and a new electrical room. Work on the east end of the south platform is anticipated to be completed this winter.

Please be careful around construction equipment and areas. 

Our construction crew is working to prepare Exhibition GO Station for future Ontario Line construction. Once complete in approximately one year, the new temporary pedestrian bridge will offer a convenient connection between the north and south sides of the station.

The new north side entrance building is open

We’re making progress on preparing your station for the future Ontario Line. There is now another way for you to access the platforms from Atlantic Avenue.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • A new temporary entrance building, just off Atlantic Avenue opened. The building leads to a tunnel that connects to both the north platform (platform 1) and the south platform (platform 4). 
  • Accessibility: Currently, there is no elevator in this new entrance building. If you have accessibility needs, please use the street-level entrance to the north platform (platform 1). 
  • Fare payment: Please use the PRESTO payment devices at the new north side entrance building, or at the street-level entrance to the north platform (platform 1). You can also use the existing PRESTO payment devices and ticket vending machines on the south side of the station.

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.   
  • We are relocating track 1 and 2 to make space for a new GO island platform.   
  • 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 and a half years to complete, at which time construction to build the new Ontario Line at your station will begin.
