As of December 19 Brampton-bound travellers will have to pay careful attention to what platforms at Union Station they need to board.
For Brampton commuters who are used to arriving and departing from platform 7, 8, 9, and/or 10, your new platform is now 11 and 12. The change will affect departures on December 19, starting with the 3:35 p.m. westbound trip. The change will be permanent until further notice.
GO Transit is encouraging people to leave extra time to learn the new platforms, and to avoid crowding situations.
In readying for the next phase of rebuilding the Union Station train roof, four platforms will be closed and three will be re-opened. This process is expected to repeat until the entire train shed is restored in two years.
