Weekend GO Train service being extended on the Lakeshore East line

TORONTO, Dec. 28, 2006 /CNW/ - GO Transit is improving service to Ajax, Whitby, and Oshawa, starting this Saturday, December 30.

Lakeshore East GO Trains will now serve Ajax, Whitby, and Oshawa GO Stations on weekends and holidays, instead of going only as far as Pickering. Passengers will no longer have to transfer to a GO Bus at Pickering station to continue on to Ajax, Whitby, or Oshawa.

“This should be welcome news for our weekend market in that area,” said GO Chairman Peter Smith. “The extended train service will be more convenient for people and will help get cars off the road.”

With the change, weekend and holiday buses that start and end in Newcastle will connect with the trains at Oshawa station instead of Pickering.

Passengers should check the new schedules before riding.

For train and bus times, 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 gotransit.com.
