GO Trains from Hespeler to Toronto

Go Trains for Hespeler could be possible!

An update on my previous blog about Go Trains going through Hespeler into Toronto. This would be via Guelph. The City has included this idea in their future master transportation plan.

City of Cambridge Moving Forward Transportation Plan

It seemed like it was a dream for the distant future. The then Liberal provincial government in 2016 funded a study looking at the best way for Cambridge to get GO Rail service.

This week the study recommendations will be presented to the Region of Waterloo Planing and Works committee. It does recommend the better option is to have GO Rail service using the Fergus sub (through Hespeler) rather than on the CP Rail line through Milton. The CBC has reported on this. Read it here.

But my guess is you don't want to go the Region of Waterloo Planning & Works Commitee, well scroll through this document to page 113 and read all about the studies recommendations!

We will have to fight for our station to be in Hespeler as the city is looking at other locations also. It has been 60 years since we had passenger rail service in Hespeler. Let us make it happen again.
