Ontario is making it easier for commuters and families to get around the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area by redeveloping Kipling Station into a major transit station that integrates subway, regional rail, and inter-regional bus services into a single hub.
Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca was joined by Peter Milczyn, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore, Yvan Baker, MPP for Etobicoke Centre, Bonnie Crombie, Mayor of Mississauga, Councillor Josh Colle, TTC Chair, and Michael Wolczyk, Metrolinx Vice President, Corridor Infrastructure, at Kipling GO Station today to announce that the province is taking the next steps on redeveloping the hub.
The redevelopment includes the area around the Kipling GO Station and the TTC’s Kipling subway station. The station will integrate the subway, GO train and local and regional bus services, including GO, TTC, and MiWay services, into a single mobility hub through a new inter-regional bus terminal.
These upgrades will also allow for increased GO rail service on the Milton GO corridor and will support the province’s GO Regional Express Rail (RER) project, which will provide faster and more frequent service on the GO Transit rail network and is the largest commuter rail project in Canada. It was recently announced that full day transit service for the Milton line is being pushed back beyond the 2041 outlook described in the agency’s “Big Move,” expansion plan. The province plans to offer 15 minute service during rush hour within five years.
“This new mobility hub will support residents by making their commute faster and less stressful in the region,” Del Duca said. The next step Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario will issue a Request for Proposals today for interested parties to design, build and finance the project.
Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province’s history. To learn more about what’s happening in your community, go to Ontario.ca/BuildON.
