Platform Changes at Union Station

STARTING SEPTEMBER 19

Beginning Wednesday, September 19, one Stouffville trip and some Barrie, Kitchener, Lakeshore East and Lakeshore West weekday afternoon trips will depart from different platforms, as we improve safety and communications features at the platform level.

If your trip is not listed, that means your platform is likely not changing.

SAFETY TIPS

The best commute is a safe one.

  • Spread along the platform, be aware of your surroundings and leave yourself with extra travel time
  • Stand behind the yellow line, as it puts you at a safe distance from oncoming trains
  • Do not block stairwells or doorways, and do not stop at the bottom or top of escalators
  • Never cross the tracks


UNION STATION REVITALIZATION

Recently we finished significant improvements to the train shed and are now enhancing safety and communication features of Union Station before we start increasing its capacity for GO expansion. Union Station was built nearly a century ago, and significant improvements are needed here and across the GO Transit network to meet growing ridership demand and support future service increases. Work will continue at Union Station for a number of years to come.

Across the region, our growth is a sign of success and opportunity, but our transportation networks are at their limit. When it comes to building transit, it’s time to get moving. That’s why Metrolinx is delivering the largest transit infrastructure program in Canadian history to keep the GTHA moving today and tomorrow.

These improvements will create the convenience of two-way, all day transit with 15-minute service or better within the most heavily traveled Metrolinx-owned rail corridors, twice the train trips during rush hour and four times the number of train trips outside of rush hour and on weekends. They will also relieve congestion by providing more reliable, predictable journeys across the region thanks to reduced crowding on highways, roads and local transit systems.
