GO could go electric

GO Transit will begin a study this summer on electrifying its entire train system.

Metrolinx plans to announce today the study, to be complete by winter 2010, will be overseen by an external advisory committee including community representatives, technical and environmental experts.

It’s likely a member of the Clean Train Coalition would be invited to join the committee, a source told the Star.

That group, composed of residents, community associations and businesses living along the Georgetown line — in the path of a huge expansion of GO service — has been pushing the province to go to cleaner electric trains rather than diesel.
