We are fast approaching the launch of the ION train and Grand River Transit is offering an opportunity to be on the first train with the ION Golden Ride contest.
“It will be a historic day and winners can say they rode the very first train,” Peter Zinck, Waterloo Region’s director of transit services, said in a statement. “It’s really a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
After years of delays, the ION trains will launch on June 21 from Fairway Station.
Grand River Transit will hold a draw on June 12 to decide the lucky winners who will each be allowed to bring a guest and also receive $500 in stored value.
You can enter on the Grand River Transit website, the Region of Waterloo building or the Ainslie Street and Charles Street terminals.
After the launch, the ION trains will run for free through Canada Day.
There are 19 stations in total for the ION trains which will run between Conestoga Mall in Waterloo and Fairway Mall in Kitchener.
