We're Improving Your Station!
We're enhancing accessibility and communication features at your station.
Starting Monday, January 20, 2020, there will be construction at your station, which will mean some temporary changes to how you get on the GO. Please remember to give yourself extra time to get to where you’re going.
The two elevators in the east tunnel will be taken out of service while we carry out important upgrades over a period of three months. The elevators are getting close to the end of their lifespan and these upgrades will make them more efficient and reliable.
Starting January 20, there will be no elevator access to or from platforms 2, 3 and 4 while the elevators are being upgraded. If you need an elevator to get on the GO, here are your options:
- Access our services from Clarkson or Bronte GO Station.
- Clarkson GO is located east of Oakville GO, at 1110 Southdown Rd, near Royal Windsor Dr. in Mississauga.
- Bronte GO is west of Oakville GO, at 2104 Wyecroft Rd., near the QEW and Third Line in Oakville.
- You can get dropped off, carpool, take a MiWay bus to Clarkson GO, or an Oakville Transit bus to both stations.
Please plan ahead. If you need assistance to get to one of these stations during construction, please fill out our request form at least 48 hours before your travel by calling GO Transit at 416-869-3200 or 1-888-438-6646 (toll free), or speaking with a Station Attendant at Oakville GO.
Digital Signs on Bus Platforms
We’re also installing new digital signs at bus platforms 4 to 8, which serve GO Transit buses. Starting the week of January 20, for about two months, your bus platform may change temporarily while the signs are installed. We will close one bus stop at a time on a rotating basis. Look for signs to help you find the temporary platform.

Other construction project at Oakville GO
Starting January 18, 39 parking spaces on the northwest side of the parking lot will be unavailable due to construction. A contractor will be on site to examine the pipeline underneath the station and make any needed repairs. The work is expected to be complete by February 8.
We expect all the upgrades to be complete by the end of March 2020.
How You'll Benefit
These upgrades are some of the early works we are carrying out as part of GO Expansion, to enhance and maintain the safety and accessibility of our existing stations. 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. At your station this means you’ll benefit from:
- upgraded elevators that will improve reliability and ensure everyone has consistent access to the platform; and
- new digital signs on bus platforms to provide one more way to stay in the know.
