Ontario budget: No GO news isn’t necessarily bad news, Niagara regional chair says

April 15, 2019 news

The 2019 Provincial Budget offered up $28-billion in public transit money for Toronto — and one line about GO transit in Niagara — but Regional Chair Jim Bradley says not to worry.

“It’s true Niagara’s GO expansion was not mentioned as part of the 2019 budget,” Bradley said. “But we have no expectations that the established timelines in Niagara will not be met. There is nothing in there to cause alarm.”

Bradley said the commitment to Niagara is already firmly established with the addition of daily GO train service.

 “There was nothing in there that tells me … the process will be slowed down.”
