Ontario Adding Two More GO Train Trips on the Milton Line
– Milton, ON
Ontario is adding two more GO train trips along the Milton GO corridor to provide more transit options for commuters, support economic development, and help manage congestion.
Starting September 6, 2016, Metrolinx is adding the following two GO train trips between Milton and Toronto that will stop at all stations along the Milton GO line:
•A new trip from Milton GO departing at 5:59 a.m. each weekday, making all stops to Union Station and arriving at 7:00 a.m.
•A new trip from Union Station departing at 5:55 p.m. each weekday, making all stops to Milton GO and arriving at 6:54 p.m.
Metrolinx is working with the Town of Milton, through a multi-stakeholder advisory group, to explore a full range of solutions that address Milton’s unique transit and congestion challenges. As well, Metrolinx is looking at rail capacity opportunities to accommodate future growth and development in the area.

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 priority transit infrastructure is part of the government’s economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit in Ontario’s history and is investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
