Clancy: GO expansion leaves Kitchener behind

March 12, 2024

KITCHENER — Ontario Greens Deputy Leader and MPP for Kitchener Centre Aislinn Clancy released the following statement in response to news that Metrolinx’s forthcoming rail service expansion will not include all-day, two-way GO service to Kitchener.

“How is it that out of the hundreds of rail trips Metrolinx is adding to the weekly GO schedule, none of them are going to bring relief to residents of Kitchener and Guelph who have been underserved for years?

Our residents need fast, reliable transit options that get them where they need to go. Reliable transit is a must if we want to unlock the economic potential of the Toronto-Kitchener innovation corridor, reduce gridlock and put an end to soul-crushing commutes.

There is no doubt that the demand is there. Already, weekend GO buses that run between Kitchener and Bramalea are so popular that they regularly fill up and have to leave would-be riders behind.

The time for all-day, two-way go on the Kitchener line was 10 years ago. How many more decades are our communities going to be left waiting?”
