New express GO Bus service for York University

TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2000 /CNW/ - Starting Tuesday, September 5, GO Transit is adding a new weekday bus service to York University. The new service will run express via Hwys. 403 and 407, connecting Oakville GO station, Square One, Bramalea GO station, York University, Yonge St., Langstaff GO station, Bayview Ave., and Unionville GO station.

“The heart of this service is of course York University,” says Eldred King, GO’s Chairman. “We hope to draw students and employees from across the GTA by serving key locations where there are good opportunities to connect with other GO services and local transit services. Think of the benefit for students who don’t have a car, or for people who just want to leave the car at home.”

In the east, all trips will run to or from Unionville GO station. In the west, some trips will extend to Oakville GO station, while others will begin or end at Square One in Mississauga. Twelve bus trips will run in each direction on weekdays.

“The east-west corridor that runs across the regions north of Toronto has been lacking a connecting transit service,” King says. “Starting next week, you’ll be able to take the same bus all the way between Unionville and Oakville.”

Full-time students who have a valid GO Transit student ID card can purchase 10-ride tickets and monthly passes at a discount. Applications for GO student ID cards are available at York University. GO tickets and passes will be sold on the York campus in Inkblotz at York Lanes (starting September 5), or at any GO rail station or bus terminal.

“Riding GO Transit is great for students,” King says. “Just imagine the quality study time they’ll have while they’re on the way to school.”

For GO information the public can call 416 869-3200 in the Toronto local calling area, 1 888 GET ON GO (438-6646) long distance toll free, or 1 800 387-3652 for TTY teletypewriters only, or check the GO website at www.gotransit.com

In addition to schedule and fare information, the GO website has links to local transit systems in the area GO serves.
