There is a study going to be conducted over the feasibility of running GO train service to Cambridge by using the CN tracks along the Fergus subdivision. The study will be done with the support of the Waterloo region, Cambridge, and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and cost an estimated $200,000 which will be split between the region and the MTO.
According to the CBC –
GO train service top priority for Cambridge, Mayor Doug Craig says
All-day 2-way GO feasible by 2024, but only if well-funded: transit expert
“This option complements our efforts to see rail service between Cambridge and Milton and opens up possibilities for even greater mobility and economic opportunity throughout the region,” Cambridge Mayor Doug Craig said in a release.
The study will also look at the future High Speed Rail service. But for the start the idea is that trains would run from Cambridge to Guelph and connect to the existing GO line to Toronto. Which would also lead to a possible follow-up study about running GO service between Cambridge and Guelph.
