Less parking at Cooksville GO Station, starting May 4

Starting “the week of May 4”, GO Transit is closing all parking spaces on the main lot west of Hurontario Street at Cooksville GO Station, as contractors resurface the lot. GO says that ample space, including carpool and accessible parking spots, is available in the parking garage.

The parking lot remains closed “until the end of 2020” or until about December 31.

GO contractors also start resurfacing the roadway and upgrading the sidewalks work on the main station access road, which leads to the parking garage. The road and sidewalks will still be accessible to motorists and pedestrians.

Meanwhile, the west side of the platform remains open while crews work on the east side of the platform and the east tunnel.

When travelling from Cooksville:

  • Use the west tunnel in the parking structure to access the platform. The tunnel is one level below the ground floor.
  • You can no longer access the platform and train from Hurontario Street. Access the station from Hillcrest Avenue. The walk will add 10 to 15 minutes to your travel time to catch your bus or train.

When travelling from Union:

  • Board your train west of the accessibility coach, closest to York Street. The doors only on those coaches will open at Cooksville GO Station.
  • Listen to the announcements on your train or ask a customer service ambassador for help.

Also starting Monday, May 4, GO is replacing the last two trains from Cooksville with buses Monday-to-Friday mornings.

Metrolinx continues a major construction project to transform Cooksville GO Station.

The transit agency has already completed a new parking structure with more than 800 more parking spaces and a pedestrian bridge to the rail platform It’s adding a new station building, tunnels and other amenities to improve how you access GO Transit services.

By the end of 2020, the station will include:

  • a new station building with a large public plaza;
  • eight new bus bays for GO and MiWay bus services;
  • better pedestrian tunnels to access rail platforms
  • new platforms with tactile yellow tiles, digital signs, canopied shelters and a snow-melt system; and
  • a new station entrance from Hurontario Street.

The new station will also allow passengers to connect to the future Hurontario light rail transit line, likely by the end of 2022.
