Kitchener Line GO Expansion
- King-Liberty GO Station
King-Liberty GO Station
A new SmartTrack GO Station in Liberty Village.
Located on the Kitchener GO line between Union and Bloor GO stations, this station will feature an enclosed pedestrian bridge connecting King Street and the High Line to the new platforms and a second pedestrian bridge connecting the new platforms to both Sudbury Street and Joe Shuster Way providing increased connectivity between neighbourhoods.
Construction timelines for the SmartTrack Stations program will be determined through the procurement process. Metrolinx has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the King-Liberty 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 include:
A pedestrian bridge that connects the new platforms to Sudbury Street and Joe Shuster Way
- Increased connectivity to multiple transit options, including TTC streetcar service on King and Queen Streets, local bus service, and Exhibition GO Station on the Lakeshore West Rail Corridor
- Single train connection to Union Station
- Convenient access to destinations such as Woodbine, Guelph, and Kitchener.
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.
