Rouge Hill GO Station is a GO Transit train station located in Toronto, ON. There are three parking lots at this station. There are two lots, one on either side of Lawrence Avenue East, with 1,041 parking spaces. A third parking lot located at the foot of Port Union Road, in the Port Union Village community has around 200 more parking spaces.
The station building contains a ticket agent, public washroom, and a Gateway refreshment kiosk. There is a train status screen to notify passengers of delays of 10 minutes or more.
Rouge Hill has two platforms with the tracks running in between. the platforms can accommodate trains of up to 12 cars. A tunnel allowing passengers to go between the two is directly outside the station building, and a second tunnel along with elevators is near the accessibility platform.
Rouge Hill was the first GO Station built when GO Train service first started in 1967. The station building was built in 1977 and was renovated in 1997/98 where a Gateway refreshment kiosk was added. I early 2009, a train status display screen and Mikey defibrillator were added.
There are two lots, one on either side of Lawrence Avenue East, with 1,041 parking spaces. A third parking lot located at the foot of Port Union Road, in the Port Union Village community has around 200 more parking spaces.
In early 2010, the lot at the foot of Port Union Rd. was built and allowed for more parking spaces to be available. Some passengers who had reserved parking spaces have moved to this new lot; having to walk around five minutes more but saving the cost of the reserved space. In late June 2010, the parking lot north of Lawrence Avenue East is being rehabilitation on half at a time. There are minor upgrades planned for the existing south parking lot. The project is due to be completed in October 2010.
There was originally one tunnel allowing passengers to go between the two platforms. A second tunnel along with elevators and accessibility platform were later added. In 2008, the platforms were lengthened eastward to accommodate 12 car trains.
Local transit connections are made in the bus loop and on Lawrence Ave.
