NEWS December 14, 2020
ETOBICOKE – Today, Christine Hogarth, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore, announced the opening of a new bus terminal at Kipling GO Station that will connect MiWay bus service to Kipling GO Station, beginning January 4, 2021. This is part of Ontario’s larger project to transform Kipling GO Station into a major transit hub, providing people with a more seamless transit experience.
“Our government is making transit easier to use for commuters and families with the newly transformed bus terminal at Kipling GO Station,” said Christine Hogarth, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore. “We are one step closer to fully opening the Kipling Transit Hub – an entirely connected transit experience that will support commuters here in Etobicoke.”
MiWay buses are temporarily using the Islington TTC subway station during the construction at Kipling GO Station. With the completion of the new bus terminal, MiWay customers will be able to fully access Kipling station’s new bus terminal and transfer directly to GO rail services and TTC. GO bus service will begin in the new year.
“Transforming Kipling Station into a single integrated mobility hub means people will spend less time commuting and have more time for the things that matter,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “Our government is investing in transit projects to better connect people to jobs and housing, when needed most.”
“We are excited to provide our customers with better transit connections at Kipling GO Station,” said Phil Verster, CEO of Metrolinx. “Our riders will have one convenient location to transfer between GO rail, GO bus in the new year, and MiWay bus service, along with access to the TTC subway and bus – this bus terminal is a major step towards the fully integrated Kipling Transit Hub.”
“I am thrilled the province is committed to building a reliable, regionally-connected transit system that will improve the commuter experience for residents of Mississauga,” said Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “This new Kipling bus terminal will offer thousands of MiWay customers access to a modern facility and I look forward to the official opening of the completed transit hub.”
Ontario is committed to enhancing transportation in the Greater Golden Horseshoe, investing in transportation infrastructure and providing two-way, all-day service on core segments of the GO rail network. As outlined in Ontario’s Greater Golden Horseshoe Transportation Plan, supporting enhanced transit infrastructure is part of the government’s plan to drive the economy and support families, businesses and communities.
- Construction is currently underway to complete the significant transformation of Kipling GO Station into a major transit hub.
- When construction to the Kipling Transit Hub is complete in early 2021, the Kipling Transit Hub will connect to GO Transit rail and bus, MiWay and TTC subway and buses all in one convenient hub.
- GO bus service is projected to start at the Kipling Transit Hub in January 2021.
