New service for Georgetown GO Bus passengers

TORONTO, Dec. 14, 2010 /CNW/ - Starting January 1, 2011, GO Transit will be making changes to many of its bus schedules in the Georgetown corridor. These changes will accommodate passenger demand and better reflect actual travel times.

Additional trips servicing Union Station, Bramalea GO Station, Malton GO Station and Brampton Bus Terminal have been added due to increased ridership.

In many cases, bus routes within the Georgetown corridor are being adjusted 5-15 minutes earlier to better reflect actual travel times. Passengers are encouraged to refer to their schedules online at gotransit.com/schedules.

    
    Highlights of Georgetown GO Bus service changes:
