Province Adding 14 GO Train Trips Between Mount Pleasant and Union Station
August 25, 2015 – Brampton, ON
Ontario is continuing to make it easier for people to get around the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area by adding more GO Transit trips between Brampton and Toronto.
Starting September 8, Metrolinx will add 14 new train trips between Mount Pleasant GO Station and Union Station during off-peak midday hours from Monday to Friday–seven eastbound to Union and seven westbound to Mount Pleasant. In addition to these new trips, one existing eastbound trip that currently departs from Bramalea will now depart from Mount Pleasant.
The additional GO Transit service, including new and enhanced bus trips, complements service improvements planned as part of the GO Regional Express Rail initiative, a priority project under the province’s Moving Ontario Forward plan. GO Regional Express Rail will provide faster, more frequent GO rail service, with electrification on core segments of the GO rail network, including the Union Pearson Express.
Ontario’s long-term infrastructure plan will help connect regions, develop new economic opportunities and improve quality of life for Ontarians by supporting critical infrastructure projects in cities, towns, and rural and remote communities all across the province.
Improving daily commutes is part of the government’s plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people’s talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
“Our unprecedented public transit investments are making transit a better choice for commuters. This is further proof of our government’s commitment to making the daily commute and quality of life better for Ontario families.” Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation
