The first glimmer of the GO Train being extended to Bow-manville came in 2004, when the GO Board approved the purchase of 13.5 acres north and south of the rail corridor in the Bowmanville West Town Centre area for the future GO Station. In 2006, GO developed the northern part for a Park and Ride facility.
Fast forward to June 2016 – good news, in 2024 GO Train service was slated to begin along 20 kilometres of track east of Oshawa along the Lakeshore East GO train line. Then Premier Kathleen Wynne, made the announcement at the site of the future GO train station on Martin Road in Bowmanville, behind Shoppers Drug Mart.
Then we had an election.
