Ontario is extending the Richmond Hill GO line with the construction of a new GO station at Highway 404 and Bloomington Road.

The new station will extend the Richmond Hill GO rail line north from the current terminus at Gormley GO Station, and will offer commuters living in Aurora and Whitchurch-Stouffville convenient access to GO Transit service.

The station will be fully-accessible and include a 765-space parking structure, charging for electric vehicles, heated shelters, a platform snowmelt system, a kiss & ride area and a covered six-bay bus loop. An additional 253 parking spaces will be available in a surface lot. The station will have rooftop solar panels and incorporate environmentally-responsible building design (LEED Gold) to reduce impact on the surrounding ecosystem.

The cost to build the station is approximately $82.4 million, and the project is expected to support approximately 200 jobs. The new GO station at Bloomington Road is scheduled to open in 2019.
