GO wave to Santa: More GO service for Toronto Santa Claus Parade

TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2011 /CNW/ - On Sunday, November 20, in addition to regular Sunday service, GO Transit will run extra trains along the Lakeshore East and West lines as well as special train service on the Barrie line for the annual Santa Claus parade in downtown Toronto.

For Lakeshore East line passengers, GO will run one extra Toronto-bound train making all stops to Union Station departing Oshawa at 10:11 a.m., and one extra homebound train making all stops to Oshawa departing Union at 4:43 p.m.

Along the Lakeshore West line, GO will run one extra Toronto-bound train making all stops to Union Station departing Aldershot at 10:34 a.m., and one extra homebound train making all stops to Aldershot departing Union at 4:13 p.m.

New this year, GO is offering GO Train service along the Barrie line for the Santa Claus parade. There will be a special Toronto-bound train making all stops to Union Station departing Barrie South at 9:52 a.m., and one homebound train making all stops to Barrie South departing Union at 4:28 p.m. Passengers are reminded that route 65 Barrie- Bradford GO Buses do not serve the East Gwillimbury, King City or Maple, Rutherford on weekends.

The GO Group Pass is an easy way for the whole family to travel. Up to five people, including one or two adults, can ride all day for the price of two adults. With no downtown driving or parking, GO Transit certainly makes the 'Nice' list for this year's parade.
