Toronto’s Union Station Enhancement Project Begins
On February 16 work commenced on the renovation of the south end of Toronto Union Station’s trainshed. The first step is closing platforms 24 to 27 at Toronto’s main transit hub so work can start on the Union Station Enhancement Project (USEP). To help fill that capacity, GO trains are now using the newly renovated platform 21, where the construction to convert it to a shared space for VIA Rail and GO Transit customers is complete.
The project includes:
Two new wide GO train platforms with canopies, which will increase safety and capacity to serve more trains
Several new vertical access points (stairs/elevators)
A new south passenger concourse spanning from Bay to York Streets, with convenient open concept connections into existing Bay, VIA, and York Concourses, Union Square and Scotiabank Arena
