Stations & Projects:

Improved infrastructure = more service.

Today, taking the GO train from Kitchener-Waterloo to Toronto and back is essentially a commuter experience - it accommodates customers who work in the city.

If you want more frequent train service that runs outside the rush hours, the Kitchener GO expansion will transform the line into a true frequent rapid transit experience. 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.

Construction of a fourth track on the Kitchener corridor through Toronto will begin in 2020. Impacts to the existing West Toronto Railpath will include some diversions and closures between Lansdowne Avenue to Dundas Street West through construction, with enhancements to the Railpath added after track construction is complete.

Metrolinx has announced a major advance in the GO Transit expansion program, with nearly 150 new and extended train trips each week, starting August 31, 2019!

For customers along the Kitchener corridor this means more travel options and improved schedule flexibility, including the first midday trip between Union and Kitchener and a new late-night option. Find out more at gotransit.com/septemberincreases.

Major construction is underway to bring even more service to the communities along the corridor in the future. Our crews have started the work to add capacity to the tunnel GO trains use to get under Highways 401 and 409. This complex project will be taking place under 21 live lanes of traffic. Learn More.

Delivering all this service has taken an enormous effort, and it’s not over yet.

We expanded the corridor through Toronto from one track to three tracks, with room for growth and a fourth track. We widened or replaced 16 bridges, built seven underpasses and overpasses to remove level crossings, and added 60 kilometres of new track.

In November 2018, we took over ownership on the Guelph Subdivision, the section of the corridor that extends from Georgetown through to Kitchener, and since then crews have been busy improving level crossings, installing new switches, and replacing rail, ties and ballast to make the commute faster and more comfortable.
