Go Transit opens new parking structure

Posted on October 19, 2012

Several Canadian transit and provincial officials marked the completion of a new parking structure at the Oakville GO Station.

More than 1,000 new parking spaces were added to the Oakville GO Station to provide better access to public transit for the more than 5,500 commuters who use the station each day. The project created 400 jobs.

The new six-story structure has a covered ground-level drop off and pick up zone that is linked to the train platforms. It also boasts a system to let customers know how many parking spaces are available, and on which level, and a new intersection with signals at Cornwall Road. Eco-friendly features include LED lighting inside and out, solar panels on the roof, and a unique white roof surface that reflects light and reduces the amount of heat absorbed by the building.

The total cost of the parking expansion project was $41.1 million. The Government of Canada is contributing up to $20.55 million, and the Government of Ontario is providing $20.55 million. This project is funded through the GO Transit Improvement Program, a $500-million joint investment announced by Prime Minister Harper and Premier McGuinty on Feb. 17, 2009.
