Infrastructure upgrades, such as the construction of third track infrastructure will further help to accommodate increased capacity on the Barrie GO line as part of the planned expansion of GO Transit rail service.
GO Rail Expansion will transform the transportation network in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area over the next decade. Metrolinx will transform the GO Transit rail network into a system that will deliver two-way, all-day service every 15 minutes over core segments of the GO Rail network.
