Electrification inching along

If transit electrification were a train, you’d be better off taking the ankle express.

The province took some more small steps toward electrifying the UP Express and GO trains. It announced this week that it “will assess the environmental impacts of converting core segments of the GO rail network, including the UP Express, from diesel to electric.”

It also announced that hydrogen fuel cells, the fuel of the forever-future, will be considered.

In 2012, Laura Albanese said the UPX would be electrified by 2017. In 2013, Glen Murray, then Transportation Minister, said the same.

One thought on “Electrification inching along”

  1. When they said 2017 they meant the teenage “later”, or was it the political “not now”? Both, I guess.
