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

GO Station Building Construction

Starting Monday, October 5, we are making improvements to the Kipling GO station building. The south half of the building will remain open for you to use, while we close the north half for construction. This will not affect how you get on the GO.

Here are tips to keep in mind during construction:

  • Please be careful around construction equipment and fenced off areas. 
  • Respect physical distancing and stay two metres apart, where possible. Half of the stairway leading to the station building will stay open for you to use while we work on the other half of the stairway.
  • You can continue to use PRESTO payment devices and ticket vending machines, which will remain in the south half of the station building for now.

When the north half of the GO station building is complete, construction will switch to the south half of the building.

Construction is expected to be complete by the end of this year, at which time the GO station building will feature: more space for you to use, as well as a new ceiling, tiles, floor, skylight, glass walls overlooking the platform and more.

Changes to Kiss & Ride location

The temporary Kiss & Ride (TTC passenger pick-up and drop-off) along Aukland Road is closed. A new paid TTC parking lot is being built in this area. There are changes to how you access the station during construction:

  • Use the paid TTC south parking lot via Munster Avenue to access the train platform and GO Station building
  • There is no elevator access to the north or the south side of the station. If you require the use of an elevator, please use Dixie GO Station. 

Later this year a new permanent Kiss & Ride along with an elevator, located northeast of the new bus terminal is expected to open.

Two new elevators connecting to the train platform are also expected to open later this year.

We're making progress

We've finished working on the west side of the platform. 

Please spread along the platform to prevent crowding and board all available doors to ensure the train leaves on time.

Our contractor will continue to work on stairs and elevators leading to the future pedestrian bridge. Please be careful around construction areas and equipment.

                    Now that we’ve established the frame of the pedestrian bridge, we’re going to install windows and work on the interior. We’re also going to continue working on the stairs and elevators that will your station fully accessible. 

                    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
                    • Repaired tunnels
                    • Updated train platform with a new accessible boarding area
