Ontario is making it easier for commuters in Scarborough to take public transit by making improvements to the Guildwood GO Station.
Work is already underway and includes:
This project also involves enabling work for future electrification that will support increases in service on the Lakeshore East GO corridor. Station improvements are expected to be completed by 2019.
Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in the province’s history – more than $134 billion over 10 years, which is making 110,000 jobs possible every year across the province, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals. Between April and September 2015, the province announced support for more than 200 projects that will keep people and goods moving, connect communities and improve quality of life.
Investing in transit is part of the government’s plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes investing in people’s talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province’s history, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure retirement savings plan.
“The Ontario government is committed to improving the province’s public transit network. These station improvements will make the daily commute easier and quality of life better for GO passengers.”
— Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation
“These improvements will provide commuters using the Guildwood GO Station with a better, more accessible station making it more convenient to take transit to their destination.”
— Mitzie Hunter, MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood
“As we expand GO Train service to meet growing demand, we need to make sure our GO stations are meeting the needs of our customers. These improvements are all about making it as easy as possible for people to choose transit first.”
— Greg Percy, President of GO Transit
