Upgrades on the Way at Mimico GO Station

Ontario Government Improving Public Transit

Ministry of Transportation

Improvements are scheduled to begin soon at Mimico GO Station to make it easier for commuters to take public transit.   

Upgrades will include:

  • repairing, extending and widening the GO Train platforms to accommodate 12-car trains
  • building a new pedestrian tunnel connecting Manchester Street to the platform and parking lot, making it easier for commuters to get to their trains
  • constructing a new station building and rehabilitating the existing pedestrian tunnel to make it more accessible
  • expanding the parking area and adding a new station access from Newcastle Street

Improvements to Mimico Station will create jobs over the next six years as work takes place.

Building transit helps create jobs now and in the future and helps people move safely and more easily. This is part of the Ontario government's economic plan to invest in people, invest in infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
