More stops, more trips coming to Hamilton GO stations this fall; Metrolinx gives update on Dundas rapid transit
Published August 26, 2021 at 3:42 pm
The Hamilton GO and West Harbour GO stations are increasing their services beginning Sept. 4.
“As many riders return to offices and schools, we’re increasing weekday train service across our network to provide more flexibility to get our customers where they need to go,” states an official media release from Metrolinx.
For the Hamilton GO Centre, four morning and four evening trips will now run express on the Lakeshore West Line, and three new trips have been added to the West Harbour GO station at 5:13 a.m., 6:13 a.m. and 7:13 a.m. on weekends.
Meanwhile, maintenance work is underway at the Hamilton GO Centre. Metrolinx says “improvements” are being made to the bus platform and bird netting is being installed.
Customers can expect rotating bus bay closures before work is completed, and departure boards will reflect the temporary zone being used during each stage. No schedule impacts are anticipated.
Metrolinx says it is working closely with Disabled and Aged Regional Transit System (DARTS) to ensure accessibility needs are met during the work, including additional signage and wayfinding.
Metrolinx also announced advanced planning for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor. The project is designed to evaluate a proposed transit corridor along a 48 kilometre stretch of Dundas Street from Highway 6 in Hamilton through to the Kipling Transit Hub in Toronto, linking Etobicoke and Mississauga City Centres.
Virtual information and question and answer sessions will take place on Sept. 22 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at MetrolinxEngage.com/DundasBRT.
