GO Transit announces Federal, Provincial funding

Posted on April 3, 2009

Canada's Minister of Transport and Infrastructure John Baird, Ontario Minister of Transportation Jim Bradley and Toronto’s GO Transit Chairman Peter Smith were on hand to announce the earmarking of $250 million for a series of GO improvement projects, including station enhancements, new maintenance and storage facilities, new stations and stops, and improvements to GO infrastructure.

This funding is part of the $500 million pledged for GO Transit by both levels of government in February this year.

 "This is a tremendous day for GO and public transit in general," said GO’s Smith. "The improvements that will come from this funding will ultimately make the system better, more convenient, and more comfortable for our riders."

GO Transit is the Province of Ontario's interregional public transit system linking Toronto with the surrounding regions of the Greater Toronto Area and carries nearly 55 million passengers a year.
