GO Transit, a regional public transit system in Ontario, Canada, operates across an area of over 11,000 square kilometers, covering the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) and the Greater Golden Horseshoe. It provides services to a population of more than seven million people. The system, known for its distinctive green-and-white trains and buses, includes diesel-powered double-decker trains and coach buses. GO Transit's services are interconnected with various local and long-distance inter-city transit services, offering comprehensive travel options within its service area.
GO Transit began operations on May 23, 1967, as part of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, marking the launch of Canada's first specially-designed commuter rail service. It started as a three-year experiment with single-deck, diesel-powered trains operating along Lake Ontario's shoreline. Due to its immense popularity and rapidly increasing ridership, the service quickly expanded. Over the years, GO Transit has grown from a single train line to seven lines and has introduced double-decker trains and an extensive bus network. Today, it is an integral part of Metrolinx, a provincial Crown agency responsible for integrated transportation planning in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. The system has undergone significant developments including the introduction of Bombardier BiLevel Coaches in 1979 and expansions like the GO Expansion project.
