TORONTO, March 31, 2008 /CNW/ -
What: After unveiling its first new double decker bus on March 20,
GO Transit is now inviting members of the media to take a ride.
The tour will offer media a sneak preview before GO introduces
all 12 double deckers into regular service by the end of April.
The new double deckers offer greater seating capacity than
GO's regular highway buses. They will improve service on some
of GO's busiest bus routes, and reduce harmful emissions per
passenger. GO is the first transit system in Ontario to
incorporate double decker buses into its fleet.
