Rouge Hill GO Station is a GO Transit train station in Toronto, Ontario located on Lawrence Avenue East at East Avenue. The station serves the West Rouge and Port Union Village neighbourhoods in the former city of Scarborough.

Station description

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. A tunnel allowing passengers to go between the two is directly outside the station building, with a second tunnel along with elevators near the accessibility coach.

There are three parking lots, one on either side of Lawrence Avenue East with 1,041 parking spaces, and a third lot located at the foot of Port Union Road, in the Port Union Village community with around 200 parking spaces. This lot was built in early 2010 and is an approximately five minute walk from the platforms.


Canadian National had a small yard and office at the foot of Port Union Road where helper engines, used to help freight trains up the grade to Scarborough, would layover. By the time GO Transit was investigating station locations, this site was no longer used and was being considered as a site of a "Port Union" GO Station. However, they soon realized that a site further east would offer improved access to the station and more space for parking and a bus loop. The site could be directly accessed by Lawrence Avenue East.[1]

Rouge Hill was officially the first GO Station to begin construction. Laid out much the same way as it is today, the station had a ticket booth by the eastern tunnel when it opened in 1967. In 1977, the current station building was constructed. It was renovated between 1977 to 1998 where a Gateway refreshment kiosk was added. In early 2009, a train status display screen and Mikey defibrillator were added.

A second larger, fully-accessible tunnel along with elevators and accessibility platform were added in the early 2000s. An opening in the platform fencing was made to provide a connection to the Port Union Waterfront Trail. In 2008, the platforms were lengthened westward to accommodate 12 car trains.
