Ontario Province has announced the construction of three new GO train stations as part of Metrolinx’s GO Regional Express Rail (RER) expansion project in Canada.
The stations, along the Barrie GO Transit line, will be built in Vaugham, Newmarket and Simcoe County.
GO RER’s project will improve transit service across Greater Toronto and Hamilton area and includes electrification of core segments of the network by 2024.
Through the Moving Ontario Forward plan, Ontario is investing $31.5bn over 10 years for transit, transportation and other priority infrastructure projects across the province.
Bruce McCuaig, Metrolinx’s president and CEO, said: “We are moving forward with the single-largest addition of new stations along the GO rail network since we started service nearly 50 years ago.
“These new stations will bring improved transportation options closer to home to help everyone get where they need to go, faster and more efficiently.”
