ON­TARIO ADDING GO BUS BY-PASS SHOUL­DERS ON HIGH­WAY 401

Road Today - - Transit Improvement -

On­tario is adding bus by­pass shoul­ders to seg­ments of High­way 401, which will im­prove ser­vice and re­li­a­bil­ity for GO Tran­sit buses dur­ing peak com­mut­ing pe­ri­ods.

By the end of Oc­to­ber, High­way 401 east­bound be­tween Re­gional Rd. 25 in Mil­ton and the High­way 401/407 in­ter­change will have the new by­pass shoul­der seg­ments. They will re­main in place un­til the up­com­ing High­way 401 ex­pan­sion oc­curs, which in­cludes the con­struc­tion of High Oc­cu­pancy Ve­hi­cle (HOV) lanes in both di­rec­tions.

Adding bus by-pass shoul­ders com­ple­ments other On­tario ini­tia­tives al­ready un­der­way to im­prove tran­sit be­tween Water­loo Re­gion and Toronto, in­clud­ing dou­bling the num­ber of week­day GO train trips be­tween Kitch­ener and down­town Toronto. Metrolinx has also in­tro­duced a new ex­press bus ser­vice run­ning all day be­tween Kitch­ener and the Bra­malea GO Sta­tion in Bramp­ton, which is timed to con­nect with GO rail and bus ser­vices to and from Toronto’s Union Sta­tion.
