GO Transit launches service at Allandale Waterfront station

On Sunday, GO Transit President Gary McNeil and local government officials marked the launch of service at the new Allandale Waterfront Station in Barrie, Ontario. The station will enable the agency to extend service into downtown Barrie and increase ridership on the Barrie line, GO Transit officials said in a prepared statement.

The $9.2 million station will “reduce traffic congestion, cut commute times, and support growth and development in Barrie,” said Patrick Brown, a member of Parliament for Barrie.

The new station includes a side rail platform with heated shelters, a mini-platform and a platform snowmelt system.

The project was funded by the federal and provincial governments through the GO Transit Improvement Program and city of Barrie.
