Agree with stations in Campbellville and Puslinch, for the reasons you cited. Puslinch could double as a bus terminal, and allow GO Bus service between Guelph/Waterloo and Hamilton/Niagara. I would caution against too many stations in the Greenbelt, ridership should be focused in designated urban centres.The problem with the CP line is that it goes through 45km of nothing before it reaches Cambridge (unlike Kitchener which goes through Guelph). The potential stops could be:
- Campbellville with a large parking lot diverting those that drive on the 401 to the Milton GO station (plus some Mohawk Slot traffic)
- Puslinch again for a parking lot on Hwy 6. But won't have much traffic as people would rather get frequent service at Aldershot...so a long-term potential but not worth building now
My personal view is that they should look at building 1 more station. Either in Campbellville or on Tremaine (when they get the interchange built there). This would help alleviate the traffic in Milton and encourage those along the 401 to take GO (getting through Milton can be a pain). Saves those people that live in Cambridge 5-10 minutes off of their commute. An incremental improvement.
If the freight bypass goes ahead, this will provide some fantastic reverse peak service for Laurier/UW/UofG students.
