Due to popular demand, here is a link to a copy of the GO PIC documents:

Please get involvd — if after reviewing this document you have comments, DO NOT hesitate to send them to the GO Transit and RJ Burnside project management. There is plenty of time for your concerns to be heard.

Secondly, there have been numerous media reports surrounding this event, which I will link to below:

First, my partner in all of this, David Graham has posted an excellent analysis on the subject on his blog. David and I have been working on GO Transit to this region for years and are both elated the time is drawing nearer. It is a credit to all the readers of this site where we both feel we made a difference in changing opinions in such a short time..

On that note, the Waterloo Record seems to indicate the about face of Waterloo Region politicians now supporting GO outright — fantastic. Feel free to read here and here (Thanks, Nick!)

And the Guelph Mercury “Trains may stop in Guelph by 2011″

What great momentum. Again, get your input in now while you still can. Believe it or not, much public input is obvious in the current PIC documents and more will only go a long way to ensure our GO Train service meets the needs of our unique Waterloo, Wellington ,and Halton HIlls regions.

I couldn’t tell from the documents presented whether there are plans to run trains Westbound in the morning, does anyone know if that will be the case? I currently live in Guelph and commute to KW and I find it annoying that there is no option take public transit.

Mike: The plans for westward trains would not begin until two way service is inagurated, approximately in 2020 (or sooner). However, fact is they are not planning westward service for the inaguration, as a result, people like us will have to wait a few more years…
