WHAT’S NEXT AT MILLIKEN GO?
What we're doing
There are changes to the way you get into and around your station, as we make improvements to your station. The north half of the platform is now closed. Here’s what this means for you:
At Milliken GO:
- Please board and exit your train at one of the cars south of the accessible ramp.
- The accessible car should be reserved for those who need to use the ramp.
- Look for signage to show you where to stand and remember to spread out along the platform.
At Union Station:
- Please board and exit your train at one of the cars on the west side of the accessible ramp – closer to York St.
- Listen to on-board announcements to ensure you’re sitting in the correct car for your stop. Not all cars will open their doors at Milliken GO.
- If you are unsure, feel free to ask your customer service ambassador for assistance.
There will be major changes to Steeles Ave as we build an underpass bridge near the train tracks. We are doing this so trains and cars can move through the area more easily.
- You will still be able to access the station along Redlea Blvd, but please give yourself extra time to catch your train.
- If you normally walk to the station, please use the temporary walkways provided.
Please remember to give yourself extra time to get to where you’re going. Don’t forget that construction and station improvements are also starting at neighbouring GO stations: Agincourt and Unionville. Kennedy GO is also under construction.
Sign up for our email and text alerts, to stay in the know about the construction that will transform your station!
We will do our best to minimize the impact to you. Since construction can be disruptive, we will use the On the GO alerts to flag any changes to the way you get in and around your station.

We’re building new amenities to provide more frequent GO train service along the Stouffville line. When we're finished in 2020, you'll have a second platform track and tunnel, elevators and more. The station will be able to accommodate the additional daily customers we anticipate in the next 10 years as we gradually increase service to two-way, all-day.The project includes:
- a new second track, so trains can run north and south, all day
- a new east platform and a reconstructed west platform with snow-melt systems
- pedestrian tunnels with elevators
- a platform canopy that will integrate shelters and entrances to tunnels and elevators
- a canopy-covered walkway to Steeles Avenue
We’re also partnering with the City to separate the train tracks from Steeles Avenue, so that trains and cars can move through the area more easily. When we’re finished there will be pedestrian bridges to connect the north and south sides of Steeles with both platforms and elevators.
Through its Regional Express Rail project – better known as GO expansion – Metrolinx is already starting to transform the existing GO rail system from a commuter service to a whole new rapid transit experience for your community. In the next ten years we’re aiming to bring you 15-minute, two-way service between Milliken GO and Union Station.
