TORONTO – GO Transit is soon offering more weekday and weekend service on its Barrie Line north of Toronto. Starting Jan. 2, 2018, the province is introducing new midday and evening weekday service between Union Station and Aurora GO Station. Hourly weekend rail service will start Dec. 30.

A total of 230 GO train trips will now operate every week along the Barrie GO line, nearly six times the 40 trips per week that were operated a decade ago.

“This is fantastic news for GO train users in my riding and everyone across York Region. Drivers, commuters and casual transit users have been asking for increased service and more GO Transit options. We are delivering. Today's announcement will help us all get where we need to go,” says Chris Ballard, member of provincial parliament for Newmarket-Aurora.

GO Transit is also increasing its bus services between Aurora and Barrie.
