(Or, consider a shuttle-bus alternative.)


Although shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans is also available for passengers. Ask TTC staff in each station for help or information about Wheel-Trans service.


Most stations on the closed section of the subway line remain open so you can pay for fares or connect with TTC buses and Line 4 Sheppard subway trains. However, North York Centre Station is closed. Note also that the TTC is temporarily closing exits / entrances at three stations:

  • At Sheppard - Yonge Station, it is temporarily closing the automatic entrance / exits on Yonge Street at Poyntz Avenue and Anndale Drive. You can use all other exits / entrances at the station.

Since Thursday, December 2, GO has closed the stairs between the bus loop and the south platform. Contractors are using this space to create a new accessibility ramp beside the stairs. Instead, use the tunnels at the station building to get to the train platforms. You can also use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the by the passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “Kiss and Ride”) to get to the south platform.

GO is closing the stairs until further notice.

GO has also temporarily removed the PRESTO fare-payment device on the west side of the stairs (between the bus loop and the south platform) until further notice.

GO has also temporarily removed the digital screen displaying trip information and the PRESTO fare-payment device on the east side of the stairs (also between the bus loop and the south platform). Crews will put the machines in place when they finish building the west ramp construction “in spring 2021”, meaning the device is out of service as late as until June 30, 2021.

PRESTO fare-payment devices are available in the station building and on the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the Kiss and Ride. Digital screens are available on the train platforms and in the GO station building.


Since Tuesday, August 4 GO has closed 15 parking spaces in the southwest lot near Stavebank Road North, so crews can store construction material for ongoing construction at Port Credit GO.


Since Monday, September 14, GO has been building a new accessible ramp connecting the bus terminal to the south train platform. This temporarily affects how you access buses at the station. The work zone blocks platform 8 in the terminal. MiWay is relocating the stop for northbound buses along the 8 Cawthra route and eastbound buses along the 23 Lakeshore route to platform 5.


Since Tuesday, October 27, crews have been installing tactile yellow safety tiles on the north side of the island platform overnight nightly. The tiles remind passengers how far back to safely stand from the edge of the platform. This will not affect how you board or exit from trains at Port Credit.

When crews have completed the north side of the island platform, they’ll start working on the south side. GO says, “Please be careful around construction equipment until work is complete on the island platform”. Construction continues until “winter 2021”, meaning as late as until March 31.


Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Lakeshore West line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).

This phase of construction at Malton GO Station continues “for two months” meaning as late as until March 6.

Since Monday, November 30, GO has closed 38 parking spaces in the lot west of the station building.

It’s also closing part of the passenger drop-off and pick-up area (the “Kiss and Ride”). However, most lanes are still available. It’s also closed part of the walkway at the west side of the station building, beside the Kiss and Ride. You can access the station building from the walkway at the east side of the station beside the bus loop.

GO is temporarily closing these facilities so that contractors can install utilities in the area and create a new laneway to access the station.

GO is closing the parking spaces, part of the Kiss and Ride and the walkway “until spring 2021”, meaning as late as until June 30, 2021.


Since Monday, October 26, GO has closed 25 parking spaces in the lot west of the station building as part of the same project.

The work zone blocks the parking spaces until “the end of the year”, meaning as late as until December 31.


Metrolinx is preparing the station for GO Expansion by:

  • adding tactile yellow safety tiles at the edge of the train platforms to remind you how far back to stand;
  • installing new digital signs on the train platforms;
  • widening the island platform to allow trains to stop on the north side; and
  • changing the accessible platform to function on both sides.

Metrolinx continues upgrading the station “until spring 2022” or until June 30, 2022.


Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Kitchener line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).

Metrolinx continues to update amenities, enhance accessibility and make accessing services at Agincourt GO Station easier and more convenient, as part of the GO Expansion Program.


Starting Monday, January 11, GO Transit is relocating PRESTO and fare machines near the platform entrance area. By relocating the machines, GO is preparing for the next stage of construction, when contractors remove the current station building. By the end of this project, the contractors will build a new station building, a second platform and new pedestrian tunnels with elevators.

Since Wednesday, December 23, 2020, GO has temporarily changed how you access the station to accommodate ongoing construction activities to build a new station structure.

GO extended the construction zone beside the station building westward to include part of the central parking lot. Crews have set up a temporary pedestrian pathway and crossing from the Dowry Street entry to the current GO Station building and platform. They also set up a pathway to connect pedestrians from Dowry Street to the Sheppard Avenue East entry.

Construction signs are in place to direct pedestrians to access the GO Station and these temporary pedestrian pathways.


Since Saturday, August 19, 2020 GO has opened a temporary south platform. It also closed the north platform and north walkway for construction.

Two new entrances safely lead you to the new platform - one is near the station building and another farther south, giving you direct access to the platform from the parking lot.

Not all doors on your train will open at Agincourt. If you’re unsure, check the graphic in this post or ask a Customer Service Ambassador for help. You may have to adjust where you normally board your train. Some coaches won’t open from outside of the train. Spread out along the platform and keep the accessibility coach available for those who need it most. Agincourt Graphic_ENG.png

The new platform means a shorter walk from the bus loop and parking lot to where you board your train. GO is also temporarily relocating accessible parking to the north parking lot.

GO says, as work progresses, you can expect more changes to the parking lots. However, the current number of parking spaces will remain the same.

When crews have finished working on the south side of the platform and installed the first tunnel and elevator, they’ll start working on the north side of the station. Door restrictions will also change then.

Construction to upgrade Agincourt GO Station continues “until the end of 2021”, meaning as late as until December 31.


Crews continue building a new canopy structure over the Sheppard Avenue East staircase at the station.

“Until early January 2021” (meaning as late as until January 16), GO is closing the staircase and the north sidewalk on Sheppard East between the signalized intersection at the entrance of the Agincourt GO Station and the rail line. The south sidewalk is open at all times. Once construction is complete, the staircase and the sidewalk will be re-opened to pedestrians.


When construction ends, you’ll benefit from:

  • a new station building that will be LEED- (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified;
  • a new passenger pick-up and drop-off area (Kiss & Ride)
  • a new second track and platform;
  • a renovated original platform;
  • two new pedestrian tunnels with elevators;
  • canopies and integrated shelters on the platforms to protect you from the elements;
  • a better connection to Sheppard Avenue East at the south end of the platforms; and
  • more landscaping.
