Lakeshore East Line GO Expansion

Eglinton GO Station

A more accessible Eglinton GO Station is coming.

Construction is underway to make the Eglinton GO Station accessible and comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).  

Eglinton GO Station, located near the intersection of Eglinton Avenue East and McCowan Road, was built in 1978 and most recently underwent rehabilitation works in 2000. This ongoing project will provide the infrastructure to allow passengers full accessibility to the station amenities and for boarding GO trains is expected to be completed in late 2024.
