An Expanding Network
Metrolinx, the Ontario government’s regional transportation agency, is currently working on the expansion and electrification of the GO Transit network. This will mean shorter journey times and increased service (two-way, all day service between Toronto and our city every 15 minutes).
A Growing Community
We are developing a GO Investment Corridor around our three GO Transit stations. These hubs will be “Complete Communities”; environmentally friendly neighbourhoods with multiple transit options and a mix of uses.
