GO Train

Barrie Line GO Expansion

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

Bradford GO Station

We’re bringing you an improved Bradford GO Station.

GO service is expanding to serve you better – with more frequent service, more stations, cleaner technology and more connections. Across the entire network, our goal is to deliver 6,000 train trips a week – so you won't need a schedule because you know the next train will be coming soon. We're transforming GO Transit to bring more frequent two-way, all-day service to the Barrie line, up to every 15 minutes, seven days a week.

The work has already started at Bradford GO Station – and along the Barrie Line – to get you where you need to go, better, faster and easier.

Project overview

Bradford GO Station, located on the Barrie rail corridor, is an important station in Simcoe County. With the population of Simcoe County expected to grow by approximately 37% by 2041, GO Expansion is happening to bring two-way, all-day service to the Barrie Line to enable better connections and travel opportunities.

Upgrades to Bradford GO Station, including parking and bus loop improvements, are a key step in support of Barrie GO Line expansion. These improvements will help to ease congestion and will get customers where they need to go, when they need to be there.

Construction on the following Bradford GO Station improvements are scheduled to begin in 2022:

  • Installing a traffic signal at the Dissette Street entrance
  • Adding new sidewalks into the station from Dissette Street and Bridge Street
  • Upgrading station lighting and CCTV
  • Upgrading parking spaces and rehabilitating the existing parking lot
  • Upgrading stormwater management system
  • Reconfiguring the bus loop with three new bays and installing one new heated shelter

Station improvements at Bradford GO will make the station more accessible for customers, whether they’re arriving on foot, by transit, or by car. This construction project will also support increased station security with upgraded lighting and CCTV.

By making improvements today, we can deliver infrastructure that will support faster, two-way, all-day service.

This project is part of GO Expansion, which means faster, more frequent travel is coming your way.
