GO Transit to receive millions from federal, provincial governments


The government dollars just keep coming for Toronto's GO Transit. Last week, the Canadian and Ontario governments announced two separate funding allocations for the commuter-rail agency.

As part of a $500 million funding agreement announced in February, the governments awarded GO Transit an additional $213 million to refurbish and purchase locomotives, and upgrade stations, track and bridges. For information on specific projects, follow this link.

Government officials also announced a $250 million earmark for another set of GO Transit system improvements, including additional station and infrastructure upgrades, new maintenance and storage facilities, and new stations.
