GO Transit is extending weekend train service to Aldershot starting Sunday, October 28

TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2007 /CNW/ - GO Transit will extend weekend and holiday Lakeshore West train trips further west to Aldershot GO Station, beginning this Sunday, October 28th. Weekend train trips on this line previously originated and ended at Oakville GO Station.

The extension of train service is good news for Burlington and Aldershot customers, as weekend and holiday service to these two stations was limited to GO Buses before. It represents an even more significant benefit to customers who use GO’s Bronte and Appleby stations, which until now were not served by GO Trains or GO Buses on weekends or holidays.

In addition to the peace of mind of letting GO do the driving to weekend activities, and the convenience of free parking at Lakeshore West stations, GO monthly pass holders can take advantage of an offer that will save money: they can bring a companion with them on weekends for free! This incentive has been available to monthly pass holders for the past several years, but the introduction of new weekend service offers a good opportunity for a reminder.

“We are very pleased to offer train service to these busy locations on weekends and holidays,” said GO Transit Chairman Peter Smith. “It’s great to be able to offer our customers and their families a convenient alternative to driving. We expect about 1,000 customers to use the new service.” This service improvement is a direct result GO Transit’s expansion program funded by the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, and the Great Toronto Area municipalities.

Starting this Sunday, eastbound train trips will leave Aldershot for Union Station starting at 7:08 a.m., and every hour until 11:08 p.m. Westbound trips will leave Union Station starting at 6:43 a.m., and every hour until 43 minutes past midnight. Passengers should check the new Lakeshore West GO Train and Bus service schedules before travelling.
