Metrolinx has released an update on their next steps to electrify and expand GO Transit service across the region.
Metrolinx, an agency of the Government of Ontario is bringing more transit and more connections to more places within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Every community transit project – big or small plays a vital role in the regional transportation plan – they want to share their plans and get your feedback. Starting in November, they will be hosting community public meetings to update the public on the transformation of the GO network to bring up to 15-minute, electrified service as well as other Metrolinx transit initiatives across the region. The Toronto meeting scheduled for the Barrie rail corridor will take place:
Tuesday, November 15th
Loretto College School
151 Rosemount Ave
Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. Presentation starts at 7 p.m. Information for the other meetings in the GTA can be found through the links below.
In order to expand transit, we need to build and expand the transit infrastructure across the region. Metrolinx is planning to add an additional track, a new train layover facility in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, upgrade existing stations, and electrify the GO Transit service. They are completing environmental studies for both the track expansion and the electrification of the GO Transit network.
