GO Transit will run extra train service for this year's Caribana Festival

TORONTO, July 27, 2010 /CNW/ - GO Transit is excited to offer additional train service during the 43rd annual Caribana Festival this year. This additional service will help over the one million people who are expected to attend this festival get downtown and will be offered on Sunday, August 1 and on the Civic Holiday, Monday, August 2.

An additional Lakeshore East train will depart Exhibition Station at 8:33 p.m. making all stops to Oshawa. For passengers travelling westbound, the 8:10 p.m. Niagara Falls train out of Union Station will make additional stops at Mimico, Long Branch, Clarkson, Bronte, Appleby, and Aldershot.

On Monday, August 2, GO will operate its Holiday schedule with the addition of the special Caribana Festival service on Lakeshore East and West.

For GO passengers travelling with smaller children: We ask that you travel with strollers that can easily be stowed rather than bulky strollers or wagons. With so many people using GO, spaces is limited and smaller strollers will help make it a comfortable and safe ride for everyone.

Toronto's Caribana Festival includes hundreds of Caribbean inspired events, classes and parties and is currently North America's largest cultural festival.
