The Government on Ontario, alongside officials from the City of Mississauga, TTC, and Metrolinx, have announced a plan to redevelop Kipling Station into a major transit station that integrates subway, regional rail, and inter-regional bus services into a single 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.

Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario are issuing a Request for Proposals for interested parties to design, build and finance the project.

Three bidders were selected in the Request for Qualifications process that began in November 2016: Bird/Kiewit JV, EllisDon Infrastructure Transit, and Kipling Infrastructure Partnership. A successful bidder is expected to be announced in fall 2017.

The scope of work at Kipling includes: an elevated pedestrian bridge; a pedestrian underground tunnel; a new entrance; renovations to the existing Kipling GO station building and existing TTC pedestrian pick-up and drop off building; a new bus terminal building for MiWay and GO Transit; complete site infrastructure including parking upgrades, and improved vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian access; and a new extension of Acorn Ave. south of Dundas St. West with vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian access, including traffic signals.
