Brampton residents will soon be able to ride the rails to Toronto all week long when weekend GO Train service starts next month.
Metrolinx has announced that customers will soon be able to travel between Brampton and Toronto on weekends.
The new, two-way weekend GO Train service is being introduced on the Kitchener Line and will start on April 8 with service running hourly in both directions between Mount Pleasant GO station in Brampton and Union Station in Toronto.
Metrolinx says the new rail service will replace the existing weekend GO Bus on route 31 but won’t service the Etobicoke North GO station.
The first eastbound trip will depart the Mount Pleasant GO station at 7:49 a.m. and the last trip will depart at 10:49 p.m. On the Toronto end, the first westbound trip will depart Union Station at 8:51 a.m. and the last trip will depart at 11:51 p.m.
Metrolinx says there will also be new weekend GO Buses servicing Waterloo, Kitchener, and Guelph and will connect with GO Trains at Mount Pleasant and Bramalea GO Stations.
Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown applauded the move on Friday and said the new service will not only help move Bramptonians across the GTA but will also allow visitors from Toronto to come to Brampton this summer to take in the Farmers’ Market and local businesses in downtown Brampton.
“Weekend GO train service has been a long-standing priority for the City of Brampton and we’ve advocated to the Province for years for this,” Brown said on Twitter. “I am very happy to see it happening and an example of standing up for our fair share working.”
Additional changes are also coming to weekday service on the Kitchener Line including one additional express trip from the Kitchener GO station at 8:08 a.m. and an additional trip will depart Bramalea GO at 9:22 a.m., making all stops to Union Station
