Ontario, Metrolinx expanding rail yard for regional express rail



Ontario and Metrolinx are taking yet another step toward implementing regional express rail service along GO Transit rail corridors. Ontario’s Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca and Metrolinx chief executive officer Bruce McCuaig visited GO’s Don Yard last week to announce that the government and its regional transit agency are upgrading and expanding the yard.

Construction at the site near Lake Shore Boulevard East and Cherry Street will result in more facilities to store and maintain GO and Union Pearson Express trains near GO’s busy Union Station hub. That means that trains will spend less time “deadheading” — traveling between the maintenance facility and the station before or after they serve passengers.
