Bloor GO Station is a railway station on GO Transit's Georgetown line, located in Toronto at 1456 Bloor Street West, between Lansdowne Avenue and Dundas Street West. It provides a connection to the Toronto Transit Commission's Bloor-Danforth subway line via their nearby Dundas West station.
Eastbound and westbound GO trains on this line use the Weston Subdivision of the Canadian National Railway, locally oriented northwest-southeast; there is one platform on each of the two tracks. Parallel to these tracks, running along their southwest side, is the Galt Subdivision of the Canadian Pacific Railway, also double-track; this carries GO trains on the Milton line, but they do not stop at Bloor station. Until 1996 there was a fifth parallel track on the other side of the CN line, which also belonged to CP and was used for access to local industries. Bloor Street dips down here to cross under all the tracks, and the station is reached by stairs from its north sidewalk.
The ticket sales office at Bloor station was closed in April 2008; tickets are sold only by vending machines. It is one of the system's few stations with no parking lot.
Dundas West subway station predates GO Transit, and its only entrance is on Dundas Street, so passengers connecting to Bloor station must walk for some 200 m along Dundas and Bloor Streets. Since the subway platforms happen to extend eastward from the station entrance, a direct tunnel from the GO station to the other end of the subway station would be relatively short; but no funding is available at present to add such a link.
