Metrolinx has finished its Old Elm GO Station on the Stouffville Line. Replacing the old station on Bethesda Road, the new station now has more vehicle and bike parking, heated shelters, a covered platform, an integrated bus loop, and better access to the station and platforms. In addition, the new station also boasts a passenger-designated waiting area, pick-up and drop-off area, and new intersections with signals where the bus entrance and main entrance intersect.
The Stouffville GO Line is also receiving improvements. These include track upgrades for future two-way service between Mount Joy and Union Station. There will also be upgrades to the Milliken, Agincourt, and Unionville GO stations and a new grade separation at Steeles Avenue located in Toronto.
Minister of Transportation, Prabmeet Sarkaria, said in a news release: “As Ontario’s population grows, our government is focused on delivering better and faster public transit to keep commuters and our economy moving. . . With the new and improved Old Elm GO Station, we’ve officially completed three major GO station improvement projects along the Stouffville Line in just the last month, proof that we’re getting it done for the people of York Region.”
Paul Calandra, MPP for Markham-Stouffville, said: These upgrades to the Old Elm GO Station demonstrate our government’s commitment to getting Ontarians where they need to be, reliably and effectively. . . Improvements to our transit network like this one will prepare our community as our province grows at an unprecedented speed.”
