Go announces expanded bus service to Kitchener, Cambridge, Guelph, but Kitchener will continue to wait for their long-announced expansion..

A report to be presented to GO Transit’s board tomorrow indicates that Guelph, Kitchener, and Cambridge are to be considered for future bus network expansion. This is an important first step towards implementing train service.

However, the report states that the long-planned GO bus service for Kitchener will not go through as promised. This leaves Kitchener/Waterloo commuters who do not wish to contribute to road congestion and pollution with the choice of VIA Rail’s lone commuter train, or Greyhound Busses for a few more years at least.

Also planned are park-and-ride lots at Campellville and at Morriston, on highway 6 south of the 401, linking these sites with the Milton GO train service. A good, but small step forward towards expanded Cambridge-line service.

The next phase of the report considering further expansion to GO’s rail network is being completed, and is to be presented at a later date.

I contacted GO a few months ago to try and find out some details about the GO bus they are talking about from Guelph to Mississauga. I finally heard back from them last month. Their response was that this service will start in September **next** year, “budget permitting”.
