TORONTO, Feb. 2 /CNW/ - GO Transit is currently operating under an
adjusted winter schedule on Lakeshore East, Lakeshore West and
Georgetown due to severe weather. Click on Service Updates at gotransit.com for the adjusted schedule and the latest information about how winter
weather is affecting GO service.
Customers are asked to monitor gotransit.com, listen for announcements, sign up for E-News, watch the departure
boards at Union Station, and monitor the news media for updates on the
weather and GO Train and Bus service.
Adjusting service is something GO considers when harsh weather hits.
This is part of GO's overall winter planning and the purpose is to run
as much service as possible in order to get passengers to their
destinations safely. The adjusted schedule means that express trains
will make all stops. This limits the number of trains crossing over
onto other tracks, reducing the likelihood of switch problems, as well
as snow and ice buildup. GO will also adjust buses so they meet
adjusted trains as best as possible. The goal is to accommodate as many
customers as best as possible.
GO will continue to monitor the weather and will provide updates on any
adjustments to service, including when regular service will resume.
For more information on GO services, the public can call 416.869.3200,
1.888.GET ON GO (438.6646), 1.800.387.3652 TTY, or monitor gotransit.com.
We promise to keep you in the know.
