Confederation GO Station
One stop closer to a more connected GTHA
Bringing more service to Hamilton is one of Metrolinx’s top priorities. Through the GO Expansion program the City of Hamilton will receive more service than there is today with a blend of train and bus services to Hamilton Centre GO, West Harbour and Confederation GO Station.
With the adoption of a market-driven approach to delivering new infrastructure across the GO Transit network, the scope of the future Confederation GO station has been finalized. A public tender was issued in April 2020. The future station will include an island platform with canopies and an accessible platform, a pedestrian tunnel, direct stair access from the platform to Centennial Parkway and approximately 150 additional parking spaces. The timeline for construction of the self-serve rail station at Confederation will be confirmed following contract award.
In the interim, we are pleased to share GO bus Route 12 has begun serving the future site of Confederation GO (the new park and ride lot at QEW/Centennial Parkway North). Approximately 60 parking spaces are available.
GO Bus route 12 connects Confederation station with Burlington GO Station and Dundas Street & Highway 407 park and ride lot to the west, and Grimsby, St. Catharines and Niagara Falls to the east.
