Whereas the Bolton Go Transit Station Lands are located on lands shown on the attached Schedule A, North of King Street, East & West sides of Humber Station Road;

Whereas, as part of Caledon Transit Feasibility Study recommendation, the Town contracted private services to run a bus transit to better serve the Bolton residents and employees/employers.
