Cooksville GO Station: Construction blocks stairwells, starting August 17

Metrolinx is continuing its project to upgrade Cooksville GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion project.

Starting Monday, August 17, GO Transit is closing stairwells on the north side of the parking garage by the bus loop. Look for signs with information about how to get to where you are going safely. GO says it needs to close part of this area to install a glass canopy. GO continues to close stairwells “on a rotating basis” until work “later this summer”, or until September 19.

Since Monday, July 27, GO has expanded the work zone so that it blocks the west entrance of the parking garage. You can still access the parking garage from the southeast entrance along the main access road or John Street.


Monday, May 25, GO opened a new passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “kiss and ride”) on the east side of the station and a new bus terminal on the north side of the parking garage.

Since “the week of May 4” , GO has closed all parking spaces on the main lot west of Hurontario Street, 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.

Also since that week, GO contractors have been resurfacing the roadway and upgrading the sidewalks on the west station access road, which leads to the parking garage. The road and sidewalks are still accessible to motorists and pedestrians.

Meanwhile, the west side of the platform remains open, while crews continue working on the east side of the platform and the east tunnel. Work on the platform affects how your board or exit from trains.

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 to Cooksville:

  • Board your train west of the accessibility coach, (in Union Station this is the end of the train closest to York Street.) Only the doors on those coaches open at Cooksville GO Station.
  • Listen to the announcements on your train or ask a customer service ambassador for help.

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