To generate enough energy to run the entire station off solar power, Bramalea GO incorporated grid-tied solar panels above the parking garage. All areas of the station also use LED lighting fixtures, ensuring energy efficiency.

Moreover, electric vehicle charging stations have been installed to promote eco-friendly transportation options. Following recent station upgrades, the team recycled 97% of its construction waste, salvaging materials for future use.

In addition to receiving the LEED Gold certification, Bramalea GO has been named the 2024 IPMI Award of Excellence winner in the design category for parking structures.

The new Bloomington GO station also features exciting sustainability measures including solar panels, LED lights, a stormwater management system and preservation of a local pond within the station property.

With numerous innovative and environmentally-friendly designs, the station is a finalist in the Sustainability in Transportation category for Architizer’s 12th Annual A+ Awards – the largest international awards program for architecture. Recently, Bloomington GO also received global recognition from the Architecture MasterPrize with an honourable mention in the Architectural Design and Transportation category.

Achieving the LEED Gold Certification is a testament to our dedication to sustainability practices and green building leadership.  With faster and more reliable transit options, Metrolinx is reducing our region’s carbon footprint and revitalizing natural habitats for the next generation.
