If you’re thinking of buying a new home in Winona, you’ll be happy to know that weekday commuter train service to Grimsby is officially “a GO.”
Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca announced on June 28 that commuters from Winona and Grimsby will be ridin’ the rails westbound toward Toronto from a new Grimsby station as soon as 2021. Niagara-bound GO Train service to St. Catharines and Niagara Falls from Grimsby will be in place by 2023.
Del Duca calls it a “real game-changer” for the Niagara Region.
Research also shows that property values are positively impacted by transit infrastructure investments. A report by the Real Estate Investment Network titled The GTA Transportation Effect notes that transportation improvements in the GTA—including subway improvements and GO Train service expansions—will enhance real estate values 10 to 20 per cent. “Distances are now measured in minutes, not kilometers,” the report authors say. “Improved accessibility drives real estate demand.”
