Under "Environmental Assessments" at the bottom of the page, "Niagara Peninsula rail service expansion"

All of the details on current expansion plans of GO Train service to the Niagara region, including plans for the James North and Centennial Parkway stops. This service would not replace the services to Hunter St, but would supplement them. Also, significant study has gone into station location selection.

A station at Gage has not been presented as an alternative at any stage of the study. If Ivor Wynne goes ahead, there could be sufficient cause to include one, especially in support of the Pan Am games and connectivity. The opportunity for transit oriented development around a Gage station would be a big plus for the neighbourhood as well. I would suggest submitting your comments to the planning team as listed on the website above, but after the stadium decision has been finalized.
