Ontario Promoting Transit Options to Help Manage Congestion, Improve Commutes
Ontario is introducing a year-long pilot that will use electronic highway signs to show drivers nearby Go train schedules and promote alternative travel options, to help manage congestion and get people where they’re going sooner.
On October 17, a sign will be installed on the QEW near Appleby GO station displaying information about upcoming GO train schedules departing from that station. The information will factor in the time it takes to drive there, park and catch the next available train. By the end of the year, the pilot will expand to Bronte and Oakville GO stations.
Ontario is making the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province’s history — about $160 billion over 12 years, which is supporting 110,000 jobs every year across the province, with projects such as hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit. Since 2015, the province has announced support for more than 475 projects that will keep people and goods moving, connect communities and improve quality of life.

Investing in alternative travel options is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
