GO Transit East Rail Maintenance Facility (Whitby, ON)

GO Transit East Rail Maintenance Facility

Project Description

The new GO Transit East Rail Maintenance Facility will be located within the Town of Whitby. The location was chosen for its favourable characteristics including: availability of property, compatible zoning, property size and shape. An investment in this project will allow GO Transit to increase maintenance capacity and expand reliable public rail transportation through the GTHA. This facility also supports expansion on all corridors to benefit expansion on all existing GO lines.
The proposed project is comprised of the following major components:

  • 18 storage tracks
  • an electrical substation for power supply to facility and trains
  • progressive maintenance bays for train inspection and maintenance
  • coach, diesel, paint and wheel shops
  • locomotive and train wash buildings
  • a fuelling station
  • staff offices

As a P3, a competitive tendering process will be used to select a company to design, build, and finance the new maintenance and storage facility and to maintain the facility throughout the contract term.
