Expanding Rush-Hour, Midday and Evening GO Transit ServicePublished on August 15, 2019
64,372 More Seats for GO Transit Customers Each Week
MISSISSAUGA – Ontario is adding nearly 150 weekly GO train trips — 84 new weekly train trips and extending 65 existing weekly trips — across GO Transit’s network to bring more rush-hour, midday, and evening service to get people moving.
“Expanding GO Transit delivers on our promise to make Ontario Open for Business and Open for Jobs,” said Rudy Cuzzetto, MPP for Mississauga-Lakeshore. “More service on the Lakeshore West line will make taking the GO more reliable, and give customers more choice when they plan their trips.”
Starting August 31, 2019, Metrolinx will add 84 new weekly GO train trips across the Lakeshore West, Lakeshore East, and Kitchener GO train lines, and extend 65 weekly trips across the Lakeshore West, Kitchener and Stouffville lines. These new and extended train trips represent an eight per cent increase in GO train service over the past year.
On the Lakeshore West line, there will be new year-round weekend GO train service between Niagara Falls and Union Station.
“We’re delivering on our promise to expand transit in Ontario by offering more service, more trains and more choice for GO customers,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “For GO Transit, this means an expansion program that will transform GO into a comprehensive two-way, all-day rapid transit system with service every fifteen minutes on core segments of the network.”
“The new midday, peak and evening services we’re adding across the GO Transit network will make taking the GO more reliable and give customers more choice when planning their trips,” said Kinga Surma, Associate Minister of Transportation (GTA). “We’re building a transportation system that puts people first by offering them transit options that fit their schedule, whether they’re meeting up with family and friends, staying late at the office or wanting to get home early.”
