Two-way, all-day GO Train service on horizon

Markham residents can one day look forward to two-way, all-day GO train service to and from Toronto following the completion of major infrastructure upgrades along the Stouffville line.

The Milliken GO Station features an additional track and platform, two new pedestrian tunnels, and additional vehicle and cycling lanes on Steeles Avenue. The Agincourt GO station is home to a new station building with modern facilities, as well as additional platforms and pedestrian tunnels.

In March 2023, the provincial government committed $70.5 billion to build new and improved public transit over the next decade. It plans to introduce two-way, all-day GO train service every 15 minutes between Unionville GO Station and Union Station by 2031. That represents up to 2,000 GO train trips per week on the Stouffville Line, compared with the current level of 164 per week.

“Our government is continuing to demonstrate progress to build a fast, safe and reliable public transit network in York Region and across the Greater Golden Horseshoe,” says Markham-Unionville MPP Billy Bang. “By investing in critical infrastructure upgrades on the Stouffville Line, we are making it faster and easier for residents in Markham-Unionville to take public transit, while continuing to deliver on our historic GO expansion plan.”
