Metrolinx continues a project to upgrade Bramalea GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program.

GO Transit is closing the the exit lane to Bramalea Road on the north side of the station Saturday, October 24. Crews are installing a storm sewer pipe in the area. Motorists on the north side of the station must exit onto Steeles Avenue East.

Brampton Transit is detouring buses along this route, while the exit lane is closed:

Starting Monday, April 20, GO permanently closed the centre pedestrian tunnel at the station. It’s building a new tunnel.

Since GO has temporarily suspended train service to and from the south platform, don’t use that platform if you need an elevator to access the station building, bus loop or parking lot on the north side. Elevators are not available at the south platform.

While GO upgrades the platforms, you may have to board or exit from trains at a different location than usually.

Travelling from Bramalea GO Station

  • Look for signs to show you where to stand and remember to spread out along the platform to help keep trains on time.
  • A temporary accessible ramp is available on the east end of the island platform near the elevator.
  • Some coaches will not open from outside of the train. Spread out along the platform and keep the accessibility coach available for those who need it most.

Travelling to Bramalea GO Station

  • Listen to the announcements on the train that will let you know which cars open doors at Bramalea GO Station.

Since August 2019, GO and Brampton Transit buses have dropped off and picked up passengers at a temporary terminal at the station.

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”).

At Bramalea, they’re building:

  • a new station structure, which links to a parking garage, adding as many as 1,300 spaces;
  • a new passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “kiss ‘n’ ride”);
  • better bus platforms for GO Transit and Brampton Transit, with a new bus loop only for Brampton’s Züm rapid-transit buses;
  • a bike-storage room;
  • new retail spaces;
  • better access to Bramalea Road;
  • a new accessible pedestrian tunnel at the west end of the station;
  • better safety features, including new emergency call systems and upgraded lighting; and
  • better platforms with a snow-melting system, canopies and capacity for 12-car trains.

Saturday, October 24, southbound buses operate along their regular route to Bramalea Road and Steeles Avenue East, then detour:

westward along Steeles East; and then
southward into Bramalea GO Station bus terminal,
ending their trips.

Northbound buses reverse the southbound detour routing.

Buses continue to drop off or pick up passengers at all stops.
