We're Planning to Transform your Station!
Starting January 1, 2021, 70 parking spaces on the northern section of the parking lot will no longer be available. The land where these parking spaces are located is leased by Metrolinx. The lease is not able to be renewed as the current lease is on a development site and the developer is interested in moving forward with their plans to construct on the site in the near future. There are still many non-reserved parking spots available at Mimico GO, in addition to over 70 reserved spots currently available.
We understand parking can be a challenge at your station. Instead of driving and parking at the station, please consider other options to get on the GO.

Here's What We're Planning
We are designing a new Mimico GO Station to make it more accessible and convenient for you! This will allow us to serve you better as we continue to improve our all-day, two-way GO train service on the Lakeshore West line over the next 10 years. We’re building up to 15-minute service or better throughout the day between Toronto and Burlington and new hourly service to and from Hamilton seven days a week, giving you more ways to get where you need to go.
There are lots of changes to get excited about. When all the work is finished, Mimico GO Station will feature:
- Two new tunnels with elevator access to the platform
- New heated shelters, canopies and snow melting systems on the platforms
- Two new Kiss & Rides at the north and south side of the station
- Bicycle/pedestrian paths and new bicycle shelters
- New access to the station from the south side
Transit Oriented Communities
We are in negotiations with VANDYK Properties, a real estate developer who owns land next to Mimico GO station, to create a mixed-use Transit Oriented Community (TOC) for Mimico GO.
As part of their mixed-use development, VANDYK would construct and integrate a new main station building, covered parking to replace current surface parking spots and a cycling and pedestrian path in front of the station. Metrolinx will deliver the other station improvements, making the station fully accessible and barrier-free.
Mimico GO station is an important connection for the Mimico and Etobicoke communities and so the TTC, Metrolinx and the City of Toronto have been working together to make travel faster and easier. In June 2018, the TTC introduced their 176 bus route and aligned the schedule so that it’s easy to connect to weekday rush-hour trains at Mimico GO. There's also a BikeShare Toronto dock at Mimico GO to make cycling to and from the station even easier.
In April 2018, Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to find the right team to design, build and finance this project. That process is expected to take until spring 2021, with construction to begin about six months later. We plan to start with the accessibility and platform upgrades, which should take about three years, and when we’re finished our work, VANDYK will construct the station building, parking, and cycling/pedestrian path. More details and the construction schedule will be provided as it becomes available. We will keep you updated as this project progresses.
