Ontario Making Daily Commute Easier for Vaughan Families
Maple, ON – Oct 13, 2016
Province Building More Parking at Maple and Rutherford GO Stations
Ontario is making the daily commute easier for families in Vaughan, by building more parking at the Maple and Rutherford GO stations.
Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation and MPP for Vaughan, was at Maple GO station today to make the announcement.
The province will construct new multi-level parking structures to help address the parking demands at Maple and Rutherford GO stations, which will provide 1,200 new spots at each station. Metrolinx will also be adding new pedestrian tunnels at both stations that will connect to the future second track and platform, which is needed to increase GO Transit service. This is another important milestone in expanding GO service on the Barrie line as part of Ontario’s ten-year GO Regional Express Rail (RER) plan.
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 transit infrastructure is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
