Ontario to Officially Open New Bloomington GO Station

Published on June 17, 2021

The government is committed to improving the transit experience and making life easier for the people of Ontario. Bloomington GO station will get customers where they need to be better, faster and easier, with more service options on the Richmond Hill line.

 

By helping to better connect the communities of Aurora and Oak Ridges, we’re keeping our promise to build accessible, modern transit infrastructure that drives economic growth and spurs job and housing opportunities across the province.

 

Our strong advocacy, and strong advocacy by other local MPPs helped push this project past the finish line.

 

Starting June 28, the new Bloomington GO station will open, giving customers another way to access GO train and bus service and will significantly relive the Aurora GO Station. 

 

As part of the GO Expansion program, the new Bloomington GO station is located at a key intersection linking Richmond Hill, Aurora and Stouffville, and brings much-needed expansion of services to commuters in York Region. The station extends the Richmond Hill line by approximately five kilometres from Highway 404 and Stouffville Road to Highway 404 and Bloomington Road.

 

As of opening day on June 28, the new Bloomington GO station will be served by all four trains every rush hour on the Richmond Hill GO line, as well as 17 GO bus Route 61 trips every weekday.

 

Not only will the new Bloomington GO station provide more access to service options on the Richmond Hill line, it features amenities that improve the customer experience, including improved station access, modern waiting areas with heated shelters and more than 1,000 parking spaces.

 

This announcement is just one part of the government’s broader commitment to delivery of the GO Expansion program – transforming GO Transit into a modern, reliable and customer-focused transit network that will support the future generations to come.
