Lakeshore East Line GO Expansion

Eglinton GO Station

A more accessible Eglinton GO Station is coming.

Eglinton GO Station, located near the intersection of Eglinton Avenue East and McCowan Road, was built in 1978 and received its most recent rehabilitation in 2000. A project has been initiated to upgrade the station to provide full passenger accessibility to the station building, the side platforms, north and south parking lots, and the pick-up, drop-off (PUDO) area.

Accessibility upgrades at Eglinton GO Station are the second phase of a two-phase project and will prepare the station to support increased two-way, all-day service in years to come.

When the scope of work is completed for the Eglinton GO Accessibility Upgrades project, the station will be fully accessible and will comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005.
