They should extend GO to Buffalo like Amtrak goes to Toronto.

Update on construction to add a bridge that will hold a third track over a canal in Hamilton. This is located at a major railway chokepoint for this part of Ontario. Apparently, the new track along with reconfiguration of the adjacent Bayview Junction will allow for more frequent commuter-rail service between Toronto and Hamilton and will also help address conflicts between freight and passenger trains. It will likely figure into the future RER for greater Toronto.

GO Transit passengers at risk for exposure to diesel exhaust
Metrolinx, which operates GO, says it has already taken measures to address pollution inside its coaches.
Toronto Star Excerpt
Feb. 7, 2017



If you’re a regular GO Transit commuter and you’re concerned about your health, you may want to start sitting at the back of the train.

New research from the University of Toronto has found that in some circumstances passengers on commuter trains are at risk for exposure to “markedly high levels” of carcinogenic diesel exhaust. Passengers in the car directly behind the locomotive are at particular risk.

The study recommends that “immediate steps be taken to evaluate and where needed mitigate exposure in all diesel powered passengers trains” and that “passengers with existing cardiac or respiratory conditions may as a precaution want to travel near the rear” of trains being pulled by a locomotive.

The study was shared with the Star in advance of its expected publication this week by the journal Atmospheric Environment. Over the past year its authors showed their findings to Metrolinx, the provincial agency that operates GO, and officials say they have already taken steps to reduce pollution inside their coaches.

Basically... duh. Big diesel locomotives create exhausts. Electrification ftw!
