All-day, two-way GO trains connecting Kitchener and Toronto could include stops just outside Breslau.
Metrolinx, the provincial agency which operates GO Transit, is planning to have a “regional express rail” route running within 10 years.
Documents being presented to Metrolinx board members next week include the recommendation to add three new stations along the Kitchener corridor in time for the launch of regional express rail – including one near Highway 7 and Greenhouse Road, east of Breslau.
Metrolinx employees say a Breslau station would be a good opportunity to attract new riders while having a limited impact on travel times in the area.
Also recommended for new stops are two locations in Toronto – one on St. Clair Avenue near Old Weston Road, and one on King Street in the Liberty Village neighbourhood.
Metrolinx says its express rail line will provide service every 15 minutes in each direction on the Kitchener line.
