Kitchener Line GO Expansion
- St. Clair-Old Weston GO Station
St. Clair-Old Weston GO Station
A new Smarttrack GO Station at St. Clair Avenue West and Old Weston Road
This station is located on Union Street north of St. Clair Avenue West, between Bloor and Mount Dennis GO Stations on the Kitchener GO rail corridor. The station will feature two new station buildings providing connection points on Union Street, as well as Gunns Road and St. Clair Avenue West, bike parking, and two pedestrian tunnels connecting the east and west platforms.
Construction timelines for the SmartTrack Stations program will be determined through the procurement process. Metrolinx has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the St. Clair-Old Weston 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:
- Close proximity to Stockyards District
- Connections to the TTC streetcar service on St. Clair Avenue
- Single train connection to Union Station
- Access to GO Transit’s Kitchener line that provides access to local destinations such as Weston and Woodbine, as well as regional destinations like Brampton, 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 five new SmartTrack 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.
