In an effort to manage growing congestion in Ontario’s major cities and to provide commuters with a wider variety of travel options, Metrolinx has announced s major boost to GO Transit service.
The changes will include more peak period GO train and bus service in Brampton, as well as other cities like Barrie, Newmarket Vaughan and Toronto.
Right now no changes have been announced to the Kitchener GO Line, but some of Brampton’s busiest GO bus routes will have increased frequency come Fall, while one is losing some service due to low ridership numbers.
Route 30 (Bramalea GO – Kitchener)
Schedules will be adjusted for some trips for improved reliability and to better reflect actual travel times, with some earlier departures of up to 10 minutes.
Route 32 (Trinity Common – North York)
A new weekday eastbound trip has been added and will depart Trinity Common at 7:45 a.m.
Route 36 (Brampton GO – North York)
The weekend westbound 2:20 a.m. trip is canceled due to low ridership. The schedule will also be adjusted to reflect better travel times and departures.
All changes will take effect September 2. Find out more about the changes here.
