Two More GO Train Trips and Parking for Commuters in Mississauga
– Mississauga, ON
Ontario is making it easier for commuters in Mississauga to access public transit by introducing new GO train trips along the Milton GO corridor and adding more parking spaces at both the Streetsville GO Station and the Square One GO Bus Terminal.
Starting September 6, 2016, Metrolinx is adding one new morning and one new afternoon GO train trip between Milton and Toronto that will stop at all stations along the Milton line, including those in Mississauga: Lisgar, Meadowvale, Streetsville, Erindale, Cooksville and Dixie. The new trips will run as follows:
•A new trip will depart from Milton GO Station at 5:59 a.m. each weekday, making all stops to Union Station and arriving at 7:00 a.m.
•A new trip will depart from Union Station at 5:55 p.m. each weekday, making all stops to Milton GO Station and arriving at 6:54 p.m.
Also, construction will begin this fall to add over 250 parking spaces at the Streetsville GO Station, bringing the total number of available spaces to more than 1,700. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2018. Construction will also begin this fall on approximately 130 new parking spaces at the Square One Bus Terminal, bringing the total number of available parking spaces to more than 330, with completion expected next spring.
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 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.
