GO Train

Barrie Line GO Expansion

We're transforming GO Transit to bring more frequent two-way, all-day service to the Barrie Line.

Bloor-Lansdowne GO Station

A New SmartTrack GO Station at Bloor Street West and Lansdowne Avenue.

Part of the SmartTrack Stations program, Bloor-Lansdowne GO Station will be located south of Bloor Street West, west of St. Helens Avenue on the Barrie line.

The station will feature bike parking, an entrance to the main station building at Bloor Street (lower level), a plaza at the platform level, a tunnel connecting east and west platforms and a new multi-use path that will run adjacent the Barrie line.  

The new multi-use path will provide a connection to the Davenport Diamond greenway to the north and future extension of the West Toronto Railpath to the south. The proposed GO station will be a short trip away from existing Lansdowne and Dundas West TTC subway stations and Bloor GO/UP Express Station. 

The construction contract for Bloor-Lansdowne GO Station was awarded in July 2023 with work anticipated to begin in 2024.

Project overview

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 include:

  • Nearby access to UP Express and TTC connections
  • Easy access to West Toronto Railpath
  • A new multi-use path along the east edge of the rail corridor to connect north of Bloor Street
  • Single train connection to Union Station
  • Convenient access to destinations on the Barrie Rail Corridor – such as Caledonia, Downsview, Aurora, Newmarket and Barrie.

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.

The SmartTrack program is a joint initiative of the Province of Ontario, Infrastructure Ontario, the City of Toronto and Metrolinx. Please visit the City of Toronto webpage for more information on the program.
