More train service for Lakeshore West, Stouffville and Richmond Hill
TORONTO, Dec. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Starting Jan. 5, GO Transit is adding
more service and adjusting schedules to serve passengers better.
Stouffville and Richmond Hill GO line passengers will have an earlier
train option in the afternoon; Lakeshore West passengers will have more
train trip options during rush hours, particularly those travelling out
of Aldershot GO Station; and some existing trips along the Lakeshore
and Barrie GO lines will be more comfortable with 320 additional seats
per trip thanks to the addition of 16 rail cars.
Some of this new train service will have an impact on GO Bus service as
connections will be adjusted and some trips will be replaced by the new
GO Train trips. Since GO assesses service on a consistent basis, some
regular GO Bus service will be adjusted and increased according to
GO Train service also begins at the new Acton GO Station on Jan. 7.
Located at 45 Eastern Avenue, the newest GO station will see two trips
during every rush hour along the Kitchener GO line.
These service enhancements further Metrolinx's regional transportation
plan, The Big Move, in making GO a faster, more frequent and more
convenient transit option.
