TORONTO, July 23, 2012 /CNW/ - On Saturday, August 4, GO Transit will be
running trains along the Milton, Kitchener, Barrie and Richmond Hill GO
lines with additional trips on the Lakeshore lines.
Taking GO this summer has never been easier with weekend train trips to
great summertime events, like the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival
parade. To give parade revelers more options to get downtown, GO is
providing special train trips on some lines that do not normally
operate on weekends and extra trips on the Lakeshore lines. The special
trips on Lakeshore, Milton, Kitchener and Richmond Hill GO lines will
include one morning Toronto-bound trip and one homebound trip in the
afternoon. GO's summer weekend train service along the Barrie line will
offer even more options to get to the parade.
Advance flat-rate GO day passes for August 4 are available at most GO
Train stations now. Adults can travel to/from the parade for $10;
discounted passes for seniors, children and groups are also available.
Getting GO fare in advance means worry-free travel on parade day.
