Frequent transit for a region on the move

Metrolinx is building a transit system that will create connections across our region, starting with all-day GO service in Kitchener-Waterloo.

For residents living and working in the Kitchener-Waterloo region, this means more frequent connections to exciting sectors to work in, access to leading colleges and universities, and a vastly improved quality of life for those of us who are now stuck fighting traffic and congestion.

Transit will no longer be a limitation to the potential of what you’re planning and imagining. Instead, it will be the catalyst.

Since bringing GO trains to Kitchener in 2011, service has doubled. Today, GO Transit’s Kitchener line provides weekday rush-hour trains travelling the 101km from between Kitchener-Waterloo to and Union Station. Four trains run east in the morning and four run west in the afternoon, connecting you to what matters most.

The Kitchener rail corridor 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, the TTC and UP Express.

Every year, 5 million trips are taken on the line, with 85 rush hour trips per week on the Kitchener Rail Corridor, plus another 65 midday trips per week.

The excitement is building as we embark on the massive transformation of the existing GO rail system to bring a whole new rapid transit experience to your community, including a new station at Breslau.

Two-way all-day service to Kitchener requires a host of new infrastructure between Kitchener GO and Bramalea GO. Significant steps are underway to make the changes needed so the corridor can accommodate two-way all-day service. This means electrifying the route, a new GO fleet to carry you, plus new signals, communications systems and bridges and tunnels.
