Metrolinx is enhancing safety features at Port Credit GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program. During various projects at the station, they’re:

  • installing tactile yellow tiles at the edge of the train platforms (now underway);
  • upgrading elevators that connect the middle platform to the south platform (underway);
  • adding an accessible ramp to the west end of the south platform (underway); and
  • upgrading the accessible ramp to the east end of the south platform (underway).

Starting Monday, January 18, GO Transit contractors are installing tactile yellow tiles on the north edge of the south platform overnight, to remind you how far back to stand.

Tile installation does not affect how you board or exit from trains.

Overnight construction to install platform-edge tiles continues “until later next month”, meaning as late as until February 28.


Since Monday, January 11, GO has closed the south platform elevator, while crews upgrade the device.

  • Use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the passenger pick-up and drop-off areas (or “Kiss and Ride) to get to the south platform.
  • After crews finish upgrading the south platform elevator, they start upgrading the island platform elevator.

Since Thursday, December 2, GO has closed the stairs between the bus loop and the south platform. Contractors are using this space to create a new accessibility ramp beside the stairs. Instead, use the tunnels at the station building to get to the train platforms. You can also use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the by the passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “Kiss and Ride”) to get to the south platform.

GO is closing the stairs until further notice.

GO has also temporarily removed the PRESTO fare-payment device on the west side of the stairs (between the bus loop and the south platform) until further notice.

GO has also temporarily removed the digital screen displaying trip information and the PRESTO fare-payment device on the east side of the stairs (also between the bus loop and the south platform). Crews will put the machines in place when they finish building the west ramp construction “in spring 2021”, meaning the device is out of service as late as until June 30, 2021.

PRESTO fare-payment devices are available in the station building and on the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the Kiss and Ride. Digital screens are available on the train platforms and in the GO station building.


Since Tuesday, August 4 GO has closed 15 parking spaces in the southwest lot near Stavebank Road North, so crews can store construction material for ongoing construction at Port Credit GO.


Since Monday, September 14, GO has been building a new accessible ramp connecting the bus terminal to the south train platform. This temporarily affects how you access buses at the station. The work zone blocks platform 8 in the terminal. MiWay is relocating the stop for northbound buses along the 8 Cawthra route and eastbound buses along the 23 Lakeshore route to platform 5.


Since Tuesday, October 27, crews have been installing tactile yellow safety tiles on the north side of the island platform overnight nightly. The tiles remind passengers how far back to safely stand from the edge of the platform. This will not affect how you board or exit from trains at Port Credit.

When crews have completed the north side of the island platform, they’ll start working on the south side. GO says, “Please be careful around construction equipment until work is complete on the island platform”. Construction continues until “winter 2021”, meaning as late as until March 31.


Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Lakeshore West line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).
