There is a popular hotel and a number of offices plus some high density residential nearby. If combined with a shift north of Oriole GO closer to Sheppard, this combination would improve connectivity to the Sheppard subway, increase the distance between the two stations, and better serve the York Mills area by being located on York Mills and having connections to the 122 bus.

This has to be done in conjunction with shifting Oriole Station to Sheppard.

This should be built in conjunction with a new oriole GO built beside the Sheppard Subway

Shall only talk about this station if Richmond hill GO were to have similar service level as 5min Smart Track. Nobody will choose it over subway if it costs more,takes more time, with awful frequency, and only takes you to Union. Agree with moving Oriole to better connect with Sheppard though.
