The Future of GO Transit

If you go to the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario’s website and click on News (it’s on the right hand side about two-thirds of the way down) you’ll find this article, GO Transit is Expanding!Awesome, does that mean more trains? More buses? New rail lines? New bus routes? More parking lot space?

No, once you click on the article you’ll see that it is actually titled GO Transit Service Is Expanding: A Summary of Improvements Since 2003. How disappointing.

Does this mean that we should not expect too much in the future from GO Transit?

Don’t get me wrong, I think GO Transit is doing well considering we live in a somewhat anti-transit environment. I do fear that this article sets the stage for McGuinty to say with the next budget that there is no money for any GO expansion in 2009.

The budget is to come down on March 26th, I guess until then we’ll just have to wait and see what the future is for GO Transit.
