Today, the GO train from Kitchener-Waterloo to Toronto and back is a commuter experience. It’s designed for those who work downtown. If you want more frequent train service that runs past rush-hour – if you want access to all the places in between – then we have an expansion coming you’ll love. The Kitchener GO expansion will transform the line into a true rapid transit experience. There will be more trips at every point along the line – from Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Halton Hills, Brampton, Mississauga, Etobicoke, central Toronto, and all its neighbours. Welcome to a new world of connection.

With more frequent service on all stops, we’ll help get you where you need to go and live the life you want to lead – connecting you to what matters most. Not to mention express trips during peak hours including in the morning from Bramalea to Union Station and back again in the afternoon. Basically, enjoy less time getting there and more time being there.

We’re making your transit experience quick, easy, and convenient so it’s your first and favourite travel choice. That means cleaner air and a cleaner environment for all of us, and a better world to pass on to our kids.

Live, work, and play wherever you want, whenever you want, with the power of purposeful connection. It’s not just about the stops along the line – this is your ticket to a web of transit that will take you across the Greater Golden Horseshoe, connecting with local services like Grand River Transit, Guelph Transit, Brampton Transit, MiWay, and the TTC.

Metrolinx is making progress on plans to deliver on two-way, all day service on the Kitchener GO Transit corridor. With our partners we are investigating options to separate freight and passenger services, including the potential to enhance service with a connection to the planned Pearson airport multi-modal transit hub.

Metrolinx will soon begin the process to hire a Technical Advisor, who will:

  • Update the environmental approvals to improve line speed on the existing corridor, allowing for a near-term increase in service.
  • Explore options to separate freight and passenger services.
  • Support exploration of options to provide passenger rail services to the Pearson Hub.
  • Begin an Environmental Assessment (EA) for further electrification of the Kitchener line and any infrastructure requirements to support expanded service to Kitchener.
  • Continue working with CN and Hydro One on further developing the previously announced freight bypass as one option for separation of freight and passenger service.
