5 0

The province is affirming its commitment to reduce traffic by expanding GO train service.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says they want to expand electric GO train service to every 15 minutes on all lines. She says that would give people choice.

Transportation Minister Glen Murray points to how quickly commuters could get downtown, underlining it would take nine minutes to get to Union Station from Danforth GO Station or 15 minutes from Bloor GO Station.

He says with limited amount of space on highways in the GTA, there needs to be other options to get into the city.

Wynne says it would be paid for by the $29 million Move Ontario Forward fund she announced on Monday.

The province plans to electrify the whole system. They will phase this in over the next 10 years.
