Metrolinx to build new station in Acton for GO trains

Written by Jenifer Nunez, assistant editor

Metrolinx in Toronto, ON, Canada, is moving forward on its plans for a new Acton GO Station.

With a land lease agreement with the Town of Halton Hills, Metrolinx is beginning construction of a new GO station in Acton this month, with construction to continue into 2013.

“We are pleased to bring GO rail service to Acton and provide additional options for travelers in this very busy corridor,” said Gary McNeil, GO Transit president. “With the addition of this new station, we are making it easier for residents to choose to leave their cars at home and use GO Transit.”

The additional stop along the Kitchener line (formerly GO’s Georgetown line) also helps to meet the demand for expanded and more frequent service in the region. This new stop provides a connection between Acton and downtown Toronto, but also supports commuters traveling between Acton and the Georgetown and Brampton areas.

Acton GO Station will be served by two morning and two evening trips on GO’s Kitchener line.
