MPP Michael Chan is pleased to announce that Ontario is bringing new all-day GO train service to the Stouffville line to help manage congestion, provide more transit options and improve commutes for families in York Region.
Ontario Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca joined MPP Chan at the Unionville GO Station today to announce the new trains.
Starting Monday, June 26, new train trips will run approximately every hour in both directions during the midday and evening periods, from Monday to Friday between Unionville GO Station and Union Station. In addition, there will be one new morning and late evening weekday train trip between Lincolnville GO Station and Union Station, and two existing train trips will be extended from Unionville GO Station to Lincolnville GO Station. In total, there will be 17 new train trips per weekday, doubling the total number of weekly train trips from 85 to170 along the Stouffville GO corridor.
“Commuters have been asking for all-day GO service on the Stouffville GO line, and our government has listened. This and other future improvements will better connect people in the region to the entire GO network.”
— Michael Chan, M.P.P., Markham-Unionville
Expanding service along the Stouffville GO corridor will support GO Regional Express Rail (RER). GO RER will provide faster and more frequent service across the GO network and is the largest commuter rail project in Canada.
