The 2021 Ontario budget outlines the next steps for the Kitchener GO Rail expansion project, include building more tracks and new platforms along the corridor between Georgetown and Kitchener.

The province said this work will include improvements to the Guelph Central Station along with track maintenance and track upgrades.

The Transit Action Alliance of Guelph (TAAG) applauds this commitment. “Two-way all-day GO service will open doors for many people and businesses,” says Steven Petric, Chair of TAAG. “There are many wins that will come from this. From helping the environment to economic prosperity, Guelph and region will benefit greatly. We look forward to the improvements at Guelph Central Station and hope there will be public consultation on changes.
