Please find below, a statement regarding the Milton GO services.
“Metrolinx is not aware of any sources that would lead to the information that was posted in the Milton Canadian Champion article. We are still working towards better service on the Milton Go line.
Metrolinx recognizes the transformative potential of two-way, all-day service on the Milton corridor, but we have consistently said an agreement with freight rail partners must be secured before this level of service can become a reality.
In the case of the Milton corridor, there is no doubt based on analysis that this is a high performing line and all communities served by this corridor would like to see more service. But as mentioned earlier Metrolinx does not own the corridor and we continue to work with our rail partner to bring as much passenger service to the Milton GO line whenever possible.
We are committed to continually rolling out improvements along the Milton Corridor whenever possible.
As of September 2016, we added 40 more trips per week between Milton and Toronto since 2009, increasing weekly trips from 60 to 100.
We are in the midst of a 10-year plan to transform the GO rail network to provide faster and more frequent GO train service.
