Lakeshore East Line GO Expansion

East Harbour Transit Hub

A New SmartTrack GO Station in East Harbour

Anticipated to be a major transit hub, this interchange station on the Lakeshore East GO line will provide seamless connectivity to more GO services, future TTC Streetcars, and the Ontario Line. This new GO Station will be in the Riverdale neighbourhood, immediately east of the Don Valley Parkway and south of Eastern Avenue, on the Lakeshore East and Stouffville GO lines.

Procurement is now underway for the East Harbour Transit Hub, which is being delivered as part of the SmartTrack Stations Program. The hub will be built immediately north of the East Harbour development, which is being delivered through Ontario’s Transit-Oriented Communities program.

This is an exciting community-building opportunity and Metrolinx looks forward to working with the City of Toronto to accelerate and realize the full potential of East Harbour.

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.

The East Harbour Transit Hub will support local transit needs in the community and regional connectivity, through the incorporation of the GO Train, Ontario Line subway and future TTC light rail transit.

East Harbour Transit Hub will offer specific benefits for the surrounding community, including:

  • Concourse area with customer amenities and accessible drop off;
  • Connections to the future Broadview Ave extension;
  • GO platforms for local and express train service, complete with elevators;
  • Access to GO trains, the future Ontario Line subway and future TTC light rail transit in one location;
  • A multi-use path and trail bridge and landings over the Don River
  • Eastern Avenue Bridge reconstruction to support both GO transit and the new Ontario Line subway; and,
  • Convenient single train connection to Pickering, Whitby, and Oshawa as well as destinations such as Mississauga, Oakville and Hamilton.

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. Based on preliminary analysis, East Harbour Transit Hub is expected to bring about 100,000 daily riders, with an approximately even split between East Harbour customers using the Ontario Line and SmartTrack GO Station (numbers are subject to change based on updated service levels).

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.
