Establishing a Fully Accessible Express Transit Route from Peterborough to Toronto


Access to reliable, affordable transit is a necessity for our community. People need transportation to and from Toronto for work, medical appointments, travel, and visiting family and friends. Under my proposal to Metrolinx and the Ministry of Transportation, we would add a fully accessible GO Transit express bus route between Peterborough and the proposed Yonge Street subway station with stops at Trent University, the Peterborough Bus Terminal and Sir Sandford Fleming College.

Once built, individuals exiting the bus at the Yonge Street Subway 'mini union' station, would be connected to the Greater Toronto Area's entire regional transit network. It would cost less than 30 dollars for a round trip and arrive at the station in approximately 60 minutes.
