Agincourt GO Station Access During Construction
Starting September 18, there will be a number of changes to access at Agincourt GO station:
- A temporary south platform will be open and available for use. The north platform and north walkway will be closed for construction.
- There will be no access to the Sheppard southwest stairs.
- New entrances will safely lead to the new platform – one will be near the station building. Another farther south will give direct access to the platform from the parking lot.
- Not all train doors will open at Agincourt. If unsure, please look at the station’s boarding infographic or ask a Customer Service Ambassador for assistance.
- The new platform means a shorter walk from the bus loop and parking lot to where passengers board the train.
- The north and south parking lots have been restored for use. Accessible parking will be temporarily relocated to the North parking lot.
