Regional Council Supports GO Transit

Regional Council approved a $1.39 million contribution to GO Transit, payable in five equal installments from 2013 to 2017, as the Region’s share of GO Transit capital investments in relation to service extension to Waterloo Region. This contribution is in response to a request by the Province of Ontario of the benefiting municipalities towards the capital cost of the recently implemented GO train service to Waterloo Region. The total capital cost for this project was approximately $18 million and the Waterloo Region contribution is $1.39 million. Whats Guelphs?

Sean – Good question, but Guelph spent $10 million on the new transit hub, which includes significant changes to bus and train connections at Guelph Central Station, is taking ownership and renovating the Station for all parties involved, and much of this money was also used to rehabilitate and lengthen the Platform and amenities for GO trains.

Does this count as a contribution? Had Waterloo Region contributed anything to date?
