Transit Toronto Regional Transit Pages
At the west end of the GO Kitchener line, GO Trains backed by cab cars 255 and 306 rest over the weekend before re-entering service the following Monday. This photograph was taken by Iain Hendry on February 27, 2016.
A lot of changes have happened or are about to happen around the City of Toronto. The Union-Pearson Express opened for service in June 2015, and ran into controversy over its fares and ridership levels. Fares will be slashed by more than half effective March 9, 2016. Meanwhile, the Mississauga Transitway continues to expand, with new stations open at Tahoe and Etobicoke Creek, ahead of planned further expansion to the Renforth Gateway within the next couple of years. Metrolinx and the City of Toronto continue to debate the merits of Regional Express Rail and SmartTrack, and while Hamilton, Mississauga and Brampton debate the merits of light rail transit, Waterloo Region finds itself well along in the construction of its new main line. A temporary dome to assist with the construction of the King Street underpass can be seen in the background of the above photograph. Look for an article on the history of the Waterloo Region LRT to appear shortly. Meanwhile, work continues on upgrading Union Station.
