For more than four years, crews have been busy on improving the station, including building a new parking garage, enhancing accessibility and installing safety features to create a better passenger experience - with more connections. Major construction on the new GO station building, the new tunnel connection and the new parking garage is complete and the new amenities are open.   The parking garage is one of the biggest on the entire GO network, with the capacity to accommodate 2,059 vehicles, including:

  • more than 100 security cameras for your safety;
  • a car-counting system to let you know how many parking spaces are available at each of the six parking levels;
  • LED lights to identify which parking spaces are available to use (green), which spaces are not available to use (red) and which spaces are designated for accessibility (blue).
  • motion-detection lights in the parking garage operate nightly to save energy. 

Crews have also finished upgrading the south platform and island (north) platform and minor repairs to the pavement on both platforms. Both platforms now have a snow-melt system that help keep the platforms clear of snow and ice, overhead canopies, shelters to protect you from the weather and tactile yellow safety tiles to remind you how far back to stand. Both platforms can now also accommodate 12-car trains.

Starting Thursday, December 22, 2022, Brampton Transit buses along routes 11 / 11 Steeles and 511 / 511A Züm Steeles again operate through the bus terminal at the station west of the station building, dropping off or picking up passengers at platforms 17 and 18. Buses along route 511 no longer serve passengers at temporary Züm stations on Steeles Avenue East.

Use extra caution when driving through the Steeles Avenue East station entrance and follow directional signs. GO crews are completing line painting work in the intersection. Also give yourself extra time to get to where you need to go. GO has newly redesigned the Steeles East entrance and it now includes separate station entrances for buses and passenger vehicles, and you may need some time to learn how to make your way through the area.

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”).
