Transportation

GO Station

East Gwillimbury is well served by all modes of transportation. More than 350 kilometres of roads create both an inter and intra-regional road network, linking the communities of East Gwillimbury to each other and to markets beyond. Metropolitan Toronto to the south and the recreation areas to the north can be accessed by Highway 400, Highway 48 or Highway 404, each lying within or in close proximity to the Town.

The Town also offers two major CN lines providing connections to Toronto and Western Canada. Inter-city commuter rail and bus service is provided by GO Transit. Lester B. Pearson International Airport is under an hour's drive from the Town. The nearby ports of Toronto, on the St. Lawrence Seaway System, allow access to worldwide shipping lanes.

Public transportation is available in the villages of Holland Landing, Mount Albert and Sharon through York Region Transit.  This service connects residents with the GO Terminal at Green Lane, Upper Canada Mall, Silver City and other points in between.  For further information and schedules please contact York Region Transit at www.yorkregiontransit.com or 1-866-MOVE YRT (668-3978)

Highway 404 Extension

To improve traffic flow, Highway 404 has been extended and opened in September, 2014. It now includes the extension of Highway 404 from Green Lane to Ravenshoe Road. The 13 kilometre extension includes two interchanges at Queensville Side Road and Woodbine Avenue in East Gwillimbury and a carpool lot.
