Terminus

Bloomington GO Station is a proposed train and bus station in the GO Transit network to be located in the extreme northeast corner of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, serving Oak Ridges and the town of Whitchurch–Stouffville. It will be the terminus of the Richmond Hill line train service when its construction is completed in 2019.[1][2] Construction of the station began in March 2017,[2] a few months after the opening of the Gormley GO Station.[1]

The station, consisting of a single platform, building, bus loop, kiss and ride, and up to 1,000 parking spaces, will be located on the south side of Bloomington Road (York Regional Road 40), on the east side of the Canadian National Railway line and west of Highway 404.[3][4] Land will also be reserved for a future carpool parking lot managed by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario.[4]

The station site will cost $82.4 million to develop.[2]
