“People in Grimsby have been asking their government for a GO station for over a decade. They want and deserve better transit connections. … We’ll finally get the train to stop in Grimsby. ” – Niagara West Riding NDP candidate Dave Augustyn
A News Release from Ontario’s NDP

GRIMSBY — An NDP government will construct a Grimsby GO Station and make sure families get access to frequent and reliable GO train service, said NDP leader Andrea Horwath and Niagara West NDP candidate Dave Augustyn.
“People in Grimsby want and deserve better access to GO Transit to get to work, school or wherever else they need to go,” said Horwath.
“Families have been waiting for years for a GO station in Grimsby. Doug Ford and the Del Duca Liberals refused to give this community access to GO trains and reliable all-day service. An NDP government will invest in better public transit and make sure Grimsby families get the GO station they need to make their commutes easier.”
Grimsby has needed, and been promised, a GO train station for years as part of Metrolinx’s Niagara Extension. Environmental assessments for a new station were completed in 2011, selecting a location on Casablanca Avenue. Yet, both Liberals and Conservatives chose not to build it.
“People in Grimsby have been asking their government for a GO station for over a decade. They want and deserve better transit connections,” said Augustyn. “The Del Duca Liberals couldn’t get it done. Ford refused to get it done. Our community can count on the NDP to make the GO station a priority and make transit more accessible for families. We’ll finally get the train to stop in Grimsby.”

GO train to Grimsby means that the politicians fulfill the promise to build the GO train to Niagara. “Niagrians” in the rest of the Region hope the service will be extended throughout the Niagara Region. It would be nice to renew the old line through the centre of the Region to serve the people along the Lake Erie shoreline as well as the Lake Ontario communities-it would also free GO service from having to work along the freight train schedules.
