The Big Move

All Day GO Station
Several NEN members attended “The Big Move” workshop on Rapid Transit on February 12 at the Art Gallery. The James Street North GO Station has been identified as a mobility hub within the Big Move, Metrolinx's regional transportation plan and will be designed to comply with Metrolinx's Mobility Hub Guidelines. For example, the station must be integrated into the local community through layout, design, architecture and landscaping and provide safe and convenient access for passengers arriving by all modes of travel including walking, cycling and local transit.

Officials from Metrolinx say Hamilton’s planned GO station on James St. N. will have a station building, a platform, a kiss-and-ride drop-off and pickup, 460 parking spots, a bus loop and pedestrian and cycling trails before the 2015 Games.

Another BIG MOVE information session will be held on March 7 10:00 – 11:30.  Register by March 4 at or phone 905 525 9140 x22542.
