In May 2005 construction of a new and more modern station building in the north parking lot was completed, replacing the existing station building at Langstaff Road. The south lot building thus to be converted to a waiting room after the new station building opened for service on June 6, 2005. The new building has a ticket office for passengers to purchase bus and train tickets on weekday mornings.
Langstaff Road East was the original routing of Highway 7 between Yonge Street and Bayview Avenue. When the former Highway 7 was upgraded, an overpass was constructed over the Canadian National Railway tracks, and the area north of Langstaff road became a large commuter parking lot. With the construction of Highway 407, the south lot was reduced in size, but newer developments north of the former Highway 7 led to the building of the new terminal.
GO Transit Bus Connections:
York Region Transit's VIVA Bus Rapid Transit serves the Richmond Hill Centre Terminal immediately west of Langstaff station, but is separated by the train tracks. A pedestrian bridge was opened in March, 2008 to connect Richmond Hill Centre Terminal and the GO train station.
Currently, the south parking lot is being modified to include a bus loop serving the 407 ETR bus routes operated by GO Transit.
