Eglinton GO Station: Changes to station access and less parking, starting September 23

Metrolinx continues working to enhance Eglinton GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program.

Starting Thursday, September 23, GO Transit is improving Eglinton GO Station by enhancing communication and safety features and making the station fully accessible.

GO has relocated the west access path to the south platform to the west side of the parking lot, near the construction trailers. Look for signs with information to guide you to your platform.

The work zone blocks about 60 parking spaces in the south parking lot. GO has relocated accessible parking spaces to two locations in the south parking lot: directly in front of the new access path to the south platform on the west side and beside the access path to the east tunnel on the east side. GO says, “Plenty of parking is still available at the station.”

GO has also slightly relocated the bike shelter to the east in the south parking lot.

The project to upgrade Eglinton GO Station and make it fully accessible includes: two new tunnels, stairwells and elevators to platforms, mini-platforms to enable boarding and exiting accessibility coaches, tactile edge tiles, new ramps, digital signage and rehabilitating the passenger pick-up / drop-off zone (or “Kiss and Ride”).

Some weekends, construction continues overnight and Metrolinx might close one of the two GO rail tracks. Metrolinx has planned these weekend closures to make sure that passengers can use Eglinton GO Station as normally as possible Mondays to Fridays, when many people rely on this station for their commutes to and from work.

These accessibility upgrades are the second phase of a two-phase project to provide full passenger accessibility to the station building, side platforms, north and south parking lots and the Kiss and Ride.

Metrolinx expects to complete construction and offer passengers a fully accessible Eglinton GO Station by “Summer 2024”, meaning as late as until September 30, 2024.

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