More GO Parking for Commuters in Maple

Ontario Government Committed to Public Transit

Ministry of Transportation

Ontario is making it easier for families in Maple to ride GO Transit by adding more parking at the Maple GO Train station.

Approximately 60 new parking spaces will be added to the area south of Maple's GO station building. The new spots will be available for use in spring 2015.

Building public transit and creating jobs is part of the government's economic plan for Ontario. The four part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.

Quick Facts

  • Over the past year, GO Trains have arrived on schedule 93 per cent of the time.
  • Since 2003, the Ontario government has extended GO’s rail network by nearly 90 kilometres, opened 10 new GO stations, rebuilt two existing stations and added more than 31,000 parking spots across the system.
  • GO Transit carries approximately 66 million passengers per year.
