Port Credit GO Station: Elevators reopened, June 15

Metrolinx continues enhancing Port Credit GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program.

Update — Monday, July 5, 8:13 a.m.: Starting today, the south platform elevator will be out of service for more upgrades until July 7 after 8 a.m. If you have accessibility needs, use the east ramp or west ramp at the south side of the station to get to and from the south platform.

The island (north) platform elevator will then be out of service starting Wednesday, July 7 and remain closed until July 9 after 8 a.m. If you have accessibility needs board or exit trains at Clarkson GO, as the island platform will not be accessible.

Starting Tuesday, June 15, GO Transit contractors finished upgrading the elevators at the station and they are now back in service. GO says, “The elevators are now more efficient, reliable and ensure everyone has consistent access to the platforms.”

Crews have been upgrading the elevators in the station since Monday, January 11.

Tuesday, June 8", GO opened the new accessible west ramp connecting the bus loop to the south platform. MiWay buses along the 8 Cawthra route pick up passengers at platform 8. Buses along the 23 Lakeshore route continue to serve passengers at platform 5.


Since Friday, May 21, GO has closed the walkway connecting the two pedestrian tunnels in the north parking lot for construction.

You can only access the west tunnel through the pedestrian bridge from Sandham Road. The east tunnel will remain accessible through the pedestrian path around the construction area from the north parking lot.

GO is closing the walkway “until September 2021”, meaning as late as until September 30.

Crews recently installed the new temporary pedestrian bridge, which has been available for passengers, since Friday, May 7. The access route from the north parking lot is no longer available due to Hurontario light rail transit construction around Mary Fix Creek.

LRT construction does not affect access from the north parking lot to the east tunnel.

Friday, April 23, GO crews installed fencing on a small section of the island (north) platform near the entrance to the stairs connecting to the east tunnel. GO contractors need this space to repair the roof, install the ceiling and complete mechanical and electrical work.

Construction and fencing on the island platform at Port Credit GO Station continue “until later this spring”, meaning as late as until June 21.

Since Thursday, December 2, 2020, GO has 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.

It’s 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 “in spring 2021”, meaning the devices are out of service as late as until June 30.

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, 2020, 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.

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”).

Metrolinx and its contractors also continue building the Hurontario light rail transit line at the station.

Metrolinx intends to build a new underpass on the south side of the rail corridor. Building the underpass will allow the LRT vehicles to travel into the future below-ground Port Credit LRT Station.

Since Monday, March 22, the LRT work zone has blocked 75 parking spaces in the north lot of Port Credit GO Station. Construction activity takes place in the northwest corner of the north parking lot. Access to the tunnels, bike shelter and pedestrian pathways remain the same as previously. GO Transit says, “There is still parking available in the north, south and west parking lots.”

Also, since Monday, February 8, GO made major changes to the station parking due to the LRT construction.

North lot:
  • GO closed some of the parking spaces in the south half of the north parking lot.
  • It relocated reserved parking spaces in the north lot.
  • A pedestrian path is available so you can walk to and from the tunnels connecting to the train platforms.
  • The elevator to the north platform remains available. The elevator to the south platform is currently under construction. An accessibility ramp is available for you to use to reach the south platform. Look for signs to help guide you to and from your platform.
  • Expect a series of closures in the north lot during construction “until the end of 2022”, meaning as late as December 31, 2022.

South lot:
  • GO closed part of the south lot on Hurontario Street. It closed part of the east side and the northern half of the parking lot.
  • It also closed the stairs from Hurontario Street into the south parking lot during construction.
  • It relocated some of the reserved parking spaces in the south lot.
  • Construction does not impact sidewalks or entrances for passengers in the south parking lot.

Also, starting “this month (Feb.)” — perhaps as early as Monday February 8 — crews are protecting and removing trees and shrubs.

Crews are installing plywood fencing around trees in the area to protect them from construction debris. They intend to protect as many trees as possible. However, they will remove trees that they can’t protect. But local bylaws require Metrolinx to replace any trees as a part of the final landscaping of the area.

Construction in the Port Credit GO Station parking lots continues “until 2023”, meaning as late as until December 31, 2023.
