TORONTO, May 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Starting June 23, GO Transit will run a summer weekend GO Train service pilot along the Barrie corridor. This service pilot will operate on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays between June 23 and September 3.

For each day of service, six trips will bring passengers to Union Station in Toronto, two will originate at Allandale Waterfront GO Station making all stops, and four will originate at East Gwillimbury GO Station also making all stops. The six northbound trips will depart Union Station with two trips making all stops to Allandale Waterfront and four trips making all stops to East Gwillimbury.

GO Buses will meet the East Gwillimbury trains and make all stops to and from the Barrie Bus Terminal.

Passengers are encouraged to check gotransit.com for more information.

"This weekend pilot moves GO further in the direction of serving a larger, non-commuter market and supports the economy, regional tourism and the communities along the Barrie rail corridor," says Gary McNeil, GO Transit president..

Expanding GO Train service beyond weekday peak period travel makes low-cost transportation solutions more accessible and appealing to a greater number of people. Transforming transit in this way fosters the vision set out by Metrolinx, GO's overseeing organization, to move people across the region efficiently and seamlessly.
