TORONTO, May 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Starting June 25, GO Transit will run an additional weekday train trip along the Milton corridor during morning and afternoon peak periods.
Two existing Toronto-bound trips will depart five minutes earlier along the route to make way for the new train in the morning. Existing afternoon train service will not be affected, although Milton GO Buses departing Union Station at 3:40 p.m. will be discontinued as passengers will have another rail option in the afternoon.
Passengers are encouraged to check gotransit.com for more information.
"Areas served by the Milton corridor have seen an exceptional amount of population and employment growth in recent years, and this will continue." GO President Gary McNeil adds, "This continues to put pressure on our rush hour service. The new train will keep up with our ridership demands."
Standing by their Passenger Charter, GO continues to take steps to improve the GO experience. More service along the Milton line will make for a more comfortable commute, and perhaps encourage new adopters of public transit.
