Kipling GO Station Improvements

Your station's transformation is underway!

We’re building a new Kipling GO bus terminal so that we can offer you GO and MiWay bus service in the future. While we’re at it, we’ll renovate the existing station to make it more convenient and comfortable for you to use. 

Read the information on this page to better understand what’s changing at your station, options for how to get on the GO during construction and describe all the new amenities you’ll experience when we’re finished. After you’ve finished reading, please answer one question to rate the helpfulness of content on this page. Share your feedback here.

What's changing

Partial platform closure:
Starting February 19, the west half of the platform at Kipling GO Station will be closed for construction as we renovate and make the platform accessible. Here’s what this means for you:

At Kipling:

  • Please board and exit your train at one of the five cars closest to the GO station building.
  •  Look for signage to show you where to stand and remember to board at all open doors to help trains leave on time.

At Union:

  • Please board and exit your train one of the first five coaches closest to Bay St.

  • Listen to on-board announcement to ensure you’re sitting in the correct car for your stop. Not all cars will open their doors at Kipling GO.

If you are unsure, ask your customer service ambassador for assistance.

Parking:
Public parking is only available on the south side of the station. Over 400 new spaces were added and are available for you to use.

The south parking lot entrance is located on Kipling Ave (on the south side of the Kipling bridge).

Passenger Pick Up and Drop Off (PPUDO):A temporary pick up and drop off area is available off Aukland Road at the intersection of Subway Crescent. Do not drop off on major roadways, block bus traffic or block residential driveways. 

Please give yourself extra time to catch your train or bus as we work on improving your station. All of these changes will be in effect until the bus terminal is ready in 2020.

                    The new bus terminal will be built in phases to minimize the impact on your commute. When all the work is finished, Kipling GO will feature:

                    • A pedestrian bridge over the train tracks - complete with elevators - to connect the new bus terminal to the GO train platform
                    • Renovated GO station building
                    • New underground tunnels to make it easier to walk between the new GO/MiWay bus terminal and the existing TTC station
