Finch-Kennedy GO Station
A New SmartTrack GO Station at Finch Avenue East and Kennedy Road
Located on Finch Avenue East between Milliken Boulevard and Midland Avenue, the station will provide GO Stouffville corridor passengers with seamless access to frequent TTC bus connections on Finch. Canopies and heated shelters will keep passengers warm and dry, while bike parking, and accessible drop-off areas will make it easy to get to the station.
Construction timelines for the SmartTrack Stations program will be determined through the procurement process. Metrolinx has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Finch-Kennedy Station – marking the first step in the procurement process.
SmartTrack is coming to Toronto to bring you a better connected, more modern transit network to get you where you need to go within your city and beyond. The SmartTrack Stations program will leverage roughly 40 km of Metrolinx’s pre-existing GO rail corridors within the city, so that new rail stations are closer to where people live, work and travel.
Specific benefits for the surrounding community, as well as transit users, include:
- Easy access to TTC bus connections through 6 TTC lay-bys and platforms
- A new road under rail grade separation with two bike lanes and sidewalks
- Single train connection to Union Station
- Convenient connections to local and regional destinations, such as Agincourt, Milliken, Unionville and Markham.
This transformative infrastructure project will provide a greater choice of reliable and convenient route options to shorten commutes and increase quality of life for locals and visitors alike. The new stations are projected to bring 110,000 new daily riders to the rail network by 2031, providing easy access to more than 52 major regional destinations located within 800 metres of transit stations, including major shopping centres, community facilities and educational institutions.
