WHAT’S NEXT AT RUTHERFORD GO?
Over the next few years, major improvements are coming to Rutherford GO. We’re working with our design team to ensure the new station meets your needs and those of the community.
A pedestrian tunnel has already been installed under the track, which is the first phase of implementing two-way, all day service to your station. The tunnel is ready to connect you to a second platform and track in the future – both needed for increased service.
There are lots of changes to get excited about!
Here’s what’s coming to your station and the community
- a new second track and fully covered platform to accommodate two-way, all day service
- better pedestrian and cyclist connectivity, including a pedestrian bridge over Rutherford Road, and dedicated bike lanes on Rutherford Road.
- a parking garage that will add 1,200 new spaces connected to a new station building
- an upgraded bus loop and Kiss & Ride
We will also be building a grade separation at Rutherford Road. This means we will be separating the tracks from the road so traffic will no longer have to wait for a train to pass, which will be a major traffic and safety improvement when we increase GO train service.
We’re also working with the City of Vaughan to improve access in and out of the station, which we know has become challenging as ridership has grown over the last number of years. This transformation is expected to start next year.
We’re excited for the changes planned for Rutherford GO and we hope you are too! We’ll continue to update this page with renderings and status updates. It’s just one of the ways we’ll keep you in the know about construction at Rutherford GO.
