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.

"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.
