Making it easier for commuters to get in and around the city, Etobicoke’s new transit hub is expected to be up and running by spring 2020. The city’s Kipling Station has begun undergoing major renovations, making it more accessible and simplifying transit users’ commutes.
The hub will connect a number of transit services, including the subway, GO Transit, TTC and MiWay buses. The design chosen, from Strasman Architects features new and improved pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle connections. This will include an elevated pedestrian bridge and underground tunnel, as well as improved parking options and bike storage.
Etobicoke’s new transit hub is part of Canada’s largest rail project, in which Ontario aims to transform GO Transit from a commuter transit system to a regional rapid transit system. This will allow weekly GO Transit rail network trips from about 1,500 to nearly 6,000 by the year 2024.
