Go Train Extension = Jobs

Four new GO Train stations have the potential to create 21,000 jobs according to a recent economic impact analysis.

The analysis shows that an extension of four new GO stations through Oshawa to Bowmanville would unlock both re-development and development opportunities.

According to the economic impact analysis:

“The project has the potential to generate $1.1 billion in transit-oriented, walkable urban development that would enable:

The creation of 21,000 permanent new jobs

6,000 person years in construction employment

6,000 homes to be built within walking distance of a GO station

More than $70 million in annual savings for residents related to time, vehicle costs and
improved road safety

A significant reduction in the amount of CO 2 emissions by decreasing private vehicle use by
50 million kilometers a year.”
