Achim Xxxxxx When? Because right now GO is not a viable option for me to commute to my downtown office location. Driving and Subway is cheaper, faster and more convenient as I don't have to worry about missing my train in the afternoon and having to wait 1 hour for the next one.

Phil Prentice I don't know if there is a firm date now - Metrolinx announced that improvements would roll out gradually over a 10-year period - I think the announcement was made a couple of years ago, but Tory's SmartTrack may have thrown a wrench into that - I am not a supporter of SmartTrack - I think SmartTrack will slow GO down with the extra stops - They should have left Metrolinx to their original RER plans - My preference would be to see the Bloor-Danforth Line 2 extended to north of Markham - It's not so much about rapid transit between Markham and downtown, but as more of a local service connecting Markham with the rest of the city - See my plans and other ideas at TorontoTransitBlog.com and SmarterTracks.com

Today, GO Transit’s Stouffville line provides weekday rush-hour train service between Lincolnville and Toronto. Trains run south in the morning, and north in the afternoon.

Now, through its Regional Express Rail project, Metrolinx is embarking on a massive transformation of the existing GO rail system to deliver a whole new rapid transit experience to your community. With frequent two-way, all-day train service 7 days a week, you’ll have more options to get you where you need to go.

Weekday rush hour

  • 15-minute, two-way service between Unionville and Union Station
  • 20-minute service from Lincolnville to Union Station in the morning and from Union Station to Lincolnville in the afternoon/evening

Midday, evening and weekend

  • 15-minute, two-way service between Unionville and Union Station
  • 60-minute, two-way service between Mount Joy and Union Station

Average times between trains are shown. Actual times may be shorter or longer depending on location and departure time.

Everyone benefits

There will be more trips at every stop along the line, bringing more transit choices to Whitchurch-Stouffville, Markham, Scarborough, central Toronto and neighbouring communities. Everyone will benefit from more:

Convenience

  • With more frequent service between Whitchurch-Stouffville and Toronto and all stops along the way, you’ll have more ways to connect to the things that matter

Speed

  • With new electric trains that accelerate faster, your journey times will be cut by up to 20%, so you’ll spend less time getting there and more time being there

Relief

  • More GO train trips means fewer cars on the road – in the next 10 years, weekly trips across the entire GO rail network will grow from about 1,500 to nearly 6,000, making it easier to choose transit first

Opportunity

  • Live, work and play where you want, when you want – frequent all-day service that connects with local transit like YRT/Viva and the TTC will strengthen ties between every community along the line
