Metrolinx and GO Transit are looking for feedback, and Hamiltonians need to make sure our voices are heard.

Currently, the GO Transit website is calling upon people to fill www.gorailsurvey.com the 2015 GO Train Survey.
In addition, a Metrolinx staffer canvassed me at Hamilton GO Station asking me to fill a different survey, at transitsurvey.ca/gotransit.
There is a very high probability that Hamilton is severely underrepresented in these surveys. Many McMaster students often catch the GO Bus to Aldershot, bypassing Hamilton Downtown GO or West Harbour GO. Other Hamiltonians drive to Aldershot GO station at the far South Parking Lot.
In these situations, it is very easy to miss the Metrolinx survey canvassers.
As Metrolinx is spending $1.2 billion on Hamilton for a combined LRT system and GO train expansion in the next several years, there are potential low-hanging fruits whose priority could be potentially be adjusted.
There are two separate surveys available for filling out.

Now "GO" represent Hamilton!
