It would make far more sense for Milton Trains to simply begin stopping at the existing Bloor GO Station which is in close proximity to Dundas West subway station. I don't see a reason to construct an additional station 200 meters south of the existing station which would have no local transit connections.

This location is too far from any transit or density to generate any usage.
