GoTrain is a regional public transit in the Greater Golden Horseshoe of Ontario. It is formerly called Government of Ontario Transit. It is developed and operated by Metrolinx, which is a government agency that is in charge of roads and public transports in Ontario, mainly the Horseshoe region.
Go Transit began its operation in 1967 and has never been the same since. Southern Ontario in the 60’s had been progressing and jobs gave people the opportunity to own houses and even cars.
Private cars were jam packed on roads everyday so the Ontario Government decided to give rise to GO Transit. It is Canada’s first commuter rail service. The first coaches were a success that Go Transit is still flourishing up to this day.
Fast forward to today, close to 846 rail cars are sophisticatedly made for the comfort of commuters and each of which can hold up to 162 passengers with the top speed of 150 km/hr.
Toronto to Niagara Falls round trip travel is now available for $25 for every trip from Toronto to Niagara Falls! Price may vary for every stop.
Metrolink is currently focused on improving the railway system of the Golden Horseshoe. The Government of Ontario wants to improve drastically where it is now before building up other rails to different parts of the country or even expanding abroad.
Future plans will be added in this blog post once official information from Metrolink and the Ontario Government is available.
