GO TRANSIT OPENS A NEW 62,000-SQUARE-FOOT YORK STREET CONCOURSE AT UNION STATION

YORKSTREET1 As GO Transit’s ridership continues to grow, the Ontario Government is investing billions of dollars increasing train service, buying new rolling stock, and generally making long distance commutes more enjoyable.

Today, April 27, the York Street concourse opened inside Union Station. It’s nearly double the size of the Bay Street concourse, and connects with the subway, the underground PATH network, other GO platforms and mainline trains. The railway station itself is undergoing a massive reno and rebuilding, and on June 6 will open express rail service to Pearson International Airport.
