Mimico Community News May/June 2018

Metrolinx Response Re: Mimico GO Station

In February, Metrolinx released a new business case analysis that included the recommendation to create a new Park Lawn GO Station in addition to operating the current Mimico GO Station. We provided more details of this proposal in our March Mimico Community News. In response to this analysis the MRA sent a letter to Metrolinx supporting the two station solution and advocating for long overdue improvements to make the Mimico GO station accessible. In April we received a response from Metrolinx which we have reviewed here.
