With word that Metrolinx workers will be getting a 8.5 per cent pay increase over four years, the Tories want to know if that will translate into higher fares or decreased service for GO users.

Progressive Conservative Transportation Critic Michael Harris says one of those things has to happen to happen in order for the regional transit authority to have enough room in its budget to pay for the salary hikes.

And drivers take note: decreased service, could lead to more traffic on the roads with people opting to take their cars.

Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca says transit users and drivers won't see a negative impact, underlining the province has a commitment in place to expand service.
