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 making progress on preparing your station for the future Ontario Line. As of Monday, June 27, there is another way for you to access the platforms from Atlantic Avenue.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • New: On Monday, June 27, 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 existing PRESTO payment devices at the street-level entrance to the north platform (platform 1) or the existing PRESTO payment devices and ticket vending machines on the south side of the station. PRESTO payment devices will be added to the new entrance building in the coming weeks. 

Electrical work is happening on the south platform

Work is taking place for the next few months on the south platform to relocate cables needed for future Ontario Line construction. The shelter on the east side of the south platform will be removed to make space for this work. You can use the nearby shelter further west instead. Work on the platform to prepare the foundation for the new pedestrian bridge has been postponed.

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.   
  • 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.

How You'll Benefit

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. We’re preparing your station for GO Expansion making it easier to access your station. Here’s what we have planned for you, once preliminary work is complete:

  • Temporary entrance building on the north side of the station including tunnel connection as well as an elevator and stairs to train platforms 
  • Permanent entrance and exit building at Atlantic Avenue
  • Extended north and south platforms
  • A temporary pedestrian bridge between the north and south sides of the station
  • An upgraded elevator at the south side of the station
