Metrolinx just released a report detailing potential new station locations across the entire GO network. I'd say this is a pretty huge development. http://www.metrolinx.com/en/docs/pd...20150922_BoardMtg_New_Station_Analysis_EN.pdf
would the condo site have to change its name to "Mimico formerly on the GO"?I'm glad to see Park Lawn is being considered, but I do not like that it is being considered in competition with existing Mimico and Kipling.
There is only one spot on that stretch of track that makes sense, and it's Park Lawn. The community needs a rapid transit hub to move the 40,000 people who will live there by 2025. I'm afraid Metrolinx will put a station at Roncesvalles, Kipling, (leave Mimico) and screw over the neighbourhood once more. Do we build transit for people or for cars?
Whatever happens, there needs to be a rapid transit station in Humber Bay Shores.would the condo site have to change its name to "Mimico formerly on the GO"?
The Hamilton GO buses did used to to stop at the old bus terminal at Queen & Roncesvalles until the early 1990s.I'm cheering for the Bloor station on the Barrie line.
On the Kitchener line, a station placed between King and Queen (with easy access from both) would serve a pretty wide area, including Liberty Village.
Roncesvalles stop on LW would be useful for me too (not sure overall though...). Would be nice to bike down there to hop on a train instead of going to Ex or Union. And actually, I wish the Hamilton GO bus would stop there..... Sometimes half the trip from Hamilton is between Roncesvalles and reallly....freaking....slow....downtown.....congestion.

Given it they eliminated it, and it seems to have more merit than many of the 50 they maintained ... I wouldn't be any more hopeful about this, than Victoria Park on the Lakeshore East line."Chapel/Gage/Tim Horton’s Field"
Whoo hoo! At least an acknowledgement.
Maybe not this generation, but at least an acknowledgement.
While expensive for a GO project, the chunk from Eglinton north could be tunnelled for under $2B. Compared to the price of a DRL extension to Sheppard, this looks ridiculously cheap for 2 exclusive tracks with very large potential capacity; the capacity restriction would be # of paying customers only for a long long time.
