This week GO Transit began its much-awaited daily weekday train service between Niagara Falls and Toronto.
This is expected to be a boon to many commuters who travel to Toronto every day. These commuters who are often forced to drive can now simply take the train.
This project took a bit of time because Metrolinx had to work out an agreement to use the rail corridor, which is owned by CN.
This is just a start and Metrolinx plans more changes going forward. At some point it is expected that a Grimsby stop will be added on the line, since Metrolinx recently announced it is looking for private partners before moving ahead with plans for a GO Train station in that community.
Commuter trains will also eventually be stopping in Stoney Creek where construction continues on the new Confederation GO Station.
As the whole region transforms and population grows, having this service can only help people consider moving further away in their quest for affordable housing. -CINEWS
