Improved infrastructure = more service
Working to get you more travel options.
The Kitchener GO expansion will transform the line into a true frequent rapid transit experience – with train service that runs outside rush hour. There will be more trips at every point along the line – from Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Halton Hills, Brampton, Mississauga, and Toronto, including new stations along the way.
Two-way, all-day service to Kitchener requires a host of new infrastructure between Kitchener GO and Bramalea. Significant steps are underway to make the changes needed so the corridor can accommodate two-way, all-day service.
Metrolinx is committed to deliver more rail service to communities beyond Kitchener as quickly as we can and to do so with an all-day service.
The Kitchener GO Rail Service Expansion Preliminary Design Business Case is now available. The PDBC further assesses delivery of two-way all-day GO Rail services on the Kitchener Corridor, on the preferred alignment and minimal infrastructure approach identified in the IBC. The PDBC evaluates two options to address a key operational constraint at Silver Junction under the same two-way all-day service concept. Learn more about the Preliminary Design Business Case.
Benefits to the Community:
Expanded rail service will provide the Guelph-Wellington Region with more direct connections to the larger GO Transit network, helping to reduce congestion in the GTHA while connecting people to education and job opportunities.
Better connectivity between Guelph-Wellington and the rest of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, supports economic development and urban development plans in the region.
