Cooksville GO Station: New pavilion, platform, tunnel and pedestrian bridge open September 21


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

Starting Monday,September 21, GO Transit is opening the east pavilion, east tunnel, east side of the platform and the pedestrian bridge for passengers to use.

The full length of the platform is now available for you to use. Spread out along the platform to board your train.

The east pavilion, north of the passenger pick-up and drop-off area or “Kiss and Ride”, provides more amenities - a waiting area, secure indoor bike shelter and outdoor bike shelter. Inside, you have direct access to the new east tunnel. East-tunnel access is also available from the station building.

If you need an elevator to get to the train platform, use the elevators in the west tunnel or at the pedestrian bridge. The elevator connecting the east tunnel to the east side of the platform is currently out of service.

The pedestrian bridge connecting to the platform, which is accessible from the fourth floor of the parking garage, is also open for you to use.

All six levels of the parking garage are also now fully open, providing more than 1,800 new spots. This brings the total number of parking spots at the station to more than 2,500.

The east pavilion and the east side of the platform have no PRESTO fare-card machines or ticket-vending machines “until later next month” or until October 31. Payment devices remain available in the station building, west tunnel, pedestrian bridge and the bus loop.

Construction is ongoing at the station. Some items, including digital signs, will not be complete “until later this fall” or until November 14.

Since Monday, August 17, GO has closed 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 month”, or until September 30.

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.

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”).
