Quick Facts:

  • The project is being delivered using IO’s Alternative Financing and Procurement model, which transfers the appropriate risks associated with design, construction and financing of the project to the private sector.
  • Work on the Milton corridor is part of a larger, system-wide plan to improve overall GO Transit service, including the delivery of Regional Express Rail (RER). RER will provide faster and more frequent service across the GO rail network, with electrified service on core segments, including the UP Express. It is one of the largest transit infrastructure investments in Canada.
