Project Background

Metrolinx’s GO Expansion Program is a multi-year investment by the Provincial Government in GO Rail service improvements, which will feature two-way, all-day service with 15-minute frequencies on core portions of the GO Rail network by 2024/25.

It includes the electrification of six GO corridors (Union Station, Barrie, Stouffville, Lakeshore East, Lakeshore West and Kitchener), enhancements to Union Station, grade separations, upgrades to existing stations, and new stations.

Current Status

Metrolinx is proceeding with the work required to implement the GO Expansion program, which will be delivered through a number of procurement packages involving many projects over the period of 2020 to 2025.

City staff are also working to bring forward staff reports on matters in which the City and Metrolinx will cooperate to improve transit and transportation within the City that results from the GO Expansion Program.
