Expected Completion: 2025

Life in York and Simcoe is busy. You’ve got a lot on your plate, and you’re looking for balance – you’re looking for easier ways to seamlessly get where you need to go. That’s what the Barrie GO expansion offers. We’re supporting the life you lead by bringing you all-day, two-way GO train service that fits your schedule. From Lake Simcoe to Lake Ontario and everywhere in between, we’ve got you covered.

Step into a regional transit system that will take you anywhere you need to go across the Greater Golden Horseshoe. New stations mean new connections to rapid transit in Toronto, while all-day service will connect you to the TTC, Barrie Transit, and YRT/Viva.

The goal is big: building over 1,200 kilometers of rapid transit across the region to ensure that over 80% percent of residents will live within two kilometres of rapid transit. We’re improving service now and into the future so transit will help York and Simcoe grow.

This build-out will bring opportunities like we’ve never had before. Whether you live in Barrie and commute to downtown Toronto for work, or take your kids to hockey practice in East Gwillimbury, or have enrolled in classes at York University, Barrie GO expansion will empower you to live the life you want to live.

Notice of Completion

The Barrie Rail Corridor Expansion (BRCE) Project has formally issued the Notice of Completion for the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) for the proposed addition of tracks and supporting infrastructure from Lansdowne Avenue in the City of Toronto to the Allandale Waterfront GO Station in Barrie. We thank everyone for their feedback to date.

We’re committed to working with the communities impacted by this transportation infrastructure program every step of the way to ensure we’re making the best decisions possible. From planning and design to construction, Metrolinx will meet with elected officials and community stakeholders, host pop-up engagements in the community and share information directly with residents as projects progress.

Your opinion matters. Make sure to check out this space for future community meetings or public engagement opportunities.
