Metrolinx to bring GO Transit service to Acton, Ontario


This month, Metrolinx will start building a GO Transit station in Acton, Ontario.

The station, which will be served by two morning and two evening trains on GO Transit's Kitchener line, will provide a connection between Acton and downtown Toronto. It also will serve commuters traveling between Acton and the Georgetown and Brampton areas.

Station features will include platform lighting, a CCTV and public announcement system, an accessible mini platform, designated waiting areas and two heated platform shelters. Fifty parking spaces for GO Transit riders will be added, boosting the total to about 110.

Construction on the station, which will enable GO Transit to serve Acton for the first time in nearly in 20 years, will continue into 2013, according to a prepared statement.
