New Ajax GO Pedestrian Bridge Now Open
Ajax, ON – Oct 16, 2017
Ontario is making it safer and easier to access GO Transit by opening a new pedestrian bridge connecting the north and south parking lots over Fairall Street at the Ajax GO Station.
Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation, joined Joe Dickson, MPP for Ajax-Pickering, at Ajax GO Station today to officially open the new pedestrian bridge. The bridge over Fairall Street will improve access for pedestrians and motorists entering and exiting Ajax GO Station.
Since 2013, Ajax GO Station has undergone extensive improvements, including a new parking structure with approximately 1,300 parking spaces, a new kiss & ride lot, and a signalled intersection to improve traffic flow through parking areas. In 2014, the platform and shelters were completely rehabilitated and a snow melt system was installed.
The province is cutting the cost of commuting for people in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Starting in January 2018, adult, senior, youth and student commuters will pay a TTC fare of just $1.50 when they use a PRESTO card to transfer between GO Transit or the UP Express and the TTC.
Ontario is making the largest investment in schools, hospitals, public transit, roads and bridges in the province’s history.
Making public transit easier and more accessible.
