Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - GO Transit opens first green transit facility in GTA



    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 27, 2009 /CNW/ -

    
    What:   Media are invited for a tour of GO's new environmentally
            friendly, state-of-the-art bus facility in Streetsville. This new
            facility houses and services over 200 buses, including GO's
            double decker buses, and has been designed and built to silver
            LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards,
            as recognized by the Canada Green Building Council. The GO
            Streetsville Bus Facility will be the first LEED transit building
            in the GTA.

            In addition to the numerous benefits to the environment, this
            building also benefits GO Bus customers. By limiting the distance
            buses travel to get to the west region, GO will save on fuel and
            fleet mileage, and minimize maintenance requirements. As GO
            ridership continues to grow, the Streetsville Bus Facility has
            the capability to expand to meet demand.
