Ontario is making it easier for commuters and families to get around the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area by improving Rutherford GO Station with more parking and additional customer-friendly features.
Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca was joined by Greg Percy, Chief Operating Officer for Metrolinx, at Rutherford GO Station today to announce that the province is taking the next steps to redevelop the station. Improvements will include:
The improvements will allow for increased GO service along the Barrie GO corridor and support GO Regional Express Rail (RER), which will provide faster and more frequent service across the GO Transit rail network and is the largest commuter rail project in Canada.
Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province's history. To learn more about what's happening in your community, go to Ontario.ca/Build ON.

Today’s announcement is an important milestone in our progress in providing 15 minute, two way - all day service to our community and all those along the Barrie GO rail corridor.”
