Over the next 25 years, York Region's population is expected grow by 68 per cent. Metrolinx is building in and around Newmarket to provide residents with more connections and better service that meets the demands of the growing population, regardless of how you choose to get around.
For Newmarket residents, this means more connections to the entire GO network with faster, more frequent local service. To make this happen, Metrolinx will be building a new station on Mulock Drive to serve area residents. Located just south of Newmarket GO Station, Mulock is one of four recommended new stations proposed to be built outside the City of Toronto. This is in addition to new weekend service on the Barrie line and expanded track work happening between Aurora and Union GO Stations. The goal is for 30-minute two-way weekday rush hour service between Newmarket and Union stations.

Metrolinx/Go Transit Frequently Asked Questions
Mobility Hub Study - Newmarket GO Station
Mobility Hub Study is being undertaken by Metrolinx, the Town of Newmarket and
other agencies. The purpose of this Study is to identify opportunities to
improve the GO Station (at the Tannery Mall) and the surrounding area over the
short and long-term. The goal is to ensure that land use and transportation
plans support appropriate future growth and accommodate multiple modes of
transit at a single site.
Status: The project commenced in December 2016 and is scheduled to conclude by the end of 2017.
Mulock GO Station
In June 2016, the Province
announced that five new stations would be constructed along the Barrie rail
corridor, one of which being in Newmarket in the vicinity of the rail corridor
and Mulock Drive. Since that time, Town staff have been working with Metrolinx and other agencies to develop a site plan for the station
lands. Through a future planning study, public consultation will play a key role in the development of a transit supportive community around the station lands.
Quick facts about the future Mulock GO Station:
- It will be located along Mulock Drive at the rail corridor.
- It will be a full service station that integrates with local bus service and bicycle trails
- The detailed design is still being undertaken by Metrolinx, the Town and Region and LSRCA (as well as other agencies)
- A future Planning Study will establish the necessary planning framework to permit additional land uses and densities in the area around the station in a transit-oriented manner
Status: Design work expected to be complete by March 2018
