Whitby GO customers now have more parking options

Written by 

On Feb. 16, a four-level parking structure opened at Whitby, Ont., GO Station offering customers 1,400 covered parking spaces and increasing the total to over 3,000 parking spots at the station.

"GO Transit is always looking to improve our customers' experience. This new multi-level parking structure will provide even more spaces for customers' vehicles and encourage more people to get on the GO," said Gary McNeil, GO Transit's Managing Director.

This parking structure is an example of GO's commitment to expanding parking and sourcing new parking options. GO Transit plans to build multi-level parking structures at select locations across the network.

"Our government has put a real emphasis on public transit to reduce congestion and get people out of single occupant vehicles and onto transit," said Kathleen Wynne, Ontario Minister of Transportation. "Our investments in transit are creating jobs, strengthening our economy and improving the quality of the air we breathe. Better public transit means a better quality of life for Ontario families."

Expanding service and adding more parking options encourages people to get onto transit, which reduces congestion on the roads and helps the environment. GO Transit continually looks for ways to improve service to better meet customer needs.
