Have you missed these transit advances? Bramalea GO Station sees huge leaps for Kitchener Line passengers

Bramalea GO Station is one of the busiest on the Kitchener Line. It’s also a good example of some of the improvements happening as part of the GO Expansion project. While many regular travellers may have been away from the Bramalea facility as the province continues to fight against COVID-19, we thought we’d offer up a photo cheat-sheet on the many changes at this station.

It’s not your parent’s Bramalea GO Station anymore.

In fact, if it’s been awhile since you took a bus or train out of the Brampton transit facility, it may seem word’s away from your own memories.

Bramalea GO Station has gone through a metamorphosis, and we thought it was time to do a bit of a progress round-up to bring everyone up to speed. These photos by Metrolinx photographer Brian Main tell the tale on how far the hub has come – and where it’s headed.

And, there’s more to come, the new temporary bus loop will open later this month. The covered bus bays, covered bicycle parking, new passenger pick-up and drop-off area, and retail space will be completed in 2022.
