Safety Upgrades Underway at Dozens of Go Bus Stations
Metrolinx is in the middle of upgrading a number of GO stations to improve customer safety at GO bus loops. As the province continues to beat back the COVID-19 pandemic and transit ridership increases, Metrolinx is making safety upgrades at several GO stations.
The safety enhancements are specifically focused on GO bus loops at stations across the region.
Metrolinx staff are always working on making transit safer for customers, community members and staff. This includes making it safer while customers wait for their bus, drive into or out of stations and improved signage. Some of the upgrades have already begun and others will continue throughout this year and into 2022.
Here’s a look at what’s happening this year:
What stations are getting upgraded?
Customers can expect to see many of these upgrades at: 407/Jane, Ajax, Bramalea, Burlington, Erindale, Finch, Kitchener, Milton, Mount Joy, Mount Pleasant, Oakville, Oshawa, Port Credit, Rutherford, Square One, Unionville, York Mills, and Yorkdale.
Coming up next year, Metrolinx has another set of upgrades planned:
While relocating some crosswalks may result in a longer walk for some customers, it will increase safety. Illuminated crosswalks will be installed only at locations that have traffic moving in multiple directions and that have island platforms.
As customers continue to return to transit, people should keep an eye out for new signs and other safety improvements as upgrades continue at dozens of GO Stations across the region.
