The new GO Trains announced yesterday will enter service on the Lakeshore and Milton lines starting in March and other lines over the next two years. The total cost is $143 million.
"Bit by bit, we’re improving the system," said GO chair Peter Smith, noting GO is now improving signals at Union Station, building a third track along the Lakeshore line and installing more hot air blowers to keep rail switches from freezing in winter — a frequent cause of late trips.
"These trains will be more reliable," he pledged.
