Mark Dowling passed along a link to the presentation materials from the recent GO Transit EA meeting in Kitchener.
You can follow the story of GO service from a Kitchener-Waterloo perspective on the GOKW Blog.
One of the fascinating points about the proposal for this corridor is that it recognizes that this line has bidirectional demand, as well as local demand that isn’t going to downtown Toronto. This has always been the case, although VIA has done the worst to discourage people from using their service.
Intriguingly the track plans in the display materials show a substantial increase in VIA service in the future. Those of us who travel to Stratford will relish better service, but the real bread-and-butter on this line is the traffic to and from universities. It’s always been a natural corridor for better service, and maybe, finally, we may actually see it.
Also worth noting is the idea of eventually moving Kitchener Station so that the line will make a good connection with the planned KW LRT line.
