Connecting transit[edit]

Finch Avenue bridges and the set of stairs to enter the railway station

Local transit services are provided by the Toronto Transit Commission, although the station is situated quite far from Finch Avenue or Leslie Street. Stairs and a footbridge across Finch Avenue provide pedestrian access to the south end of the station platform.

Passengers boarding TTC first, then again at the end of their GO Transit journey may use a TTC transfer for their second ride. At Old Cummer GO Station this applies to bus routes 39 Finch East, 42 Cummer, 51 Leslie and 199 Finch Rocket. VIA Rail trains on the Canadian pass through this station on the way to Vancouver or Toronto, but do not stop. [2]
