More transfer-free rides and a change coming to GO Bus route in Mississauga
If you regularly use the GO Bus to commute around the city, you should note that some changes are coming to select bus routes.
In a blog post, Metrolinx says that upcoming service changes will see adjustments to most weekday trips on bus routes serving Hwy. 407. According to Metrolinx, GO Transit will be combining most weekday trips on some east-west routes to give riders more transfer-free rides across the region.
The changes will come into effect on Feb. 13.
Metrolinx says the new consolidated routes mean will create new cross-regional transit options that span Pickering and Hamilton (Route 41), as well as Oshawa and Oakville (Route 56). The post says this will eliminate the need for customers to transfer between buses at the Hwy. 407 bus terminal.
The post says the new GO bus Route 41 will be a combination of most weekday Route 47 and 51 trips - with some time adjustments. Weekday schedules will now include 38 trips serving this new route, which will offer customers a transfer-free ride between Hamilton and Pickering.
Metrolinx says the new GO bus Route 56 will be a combination of most weekday Route 46 and 52 trips with some time adjustments. Weekday schedules will now include 38 trips serving this new route, which will offer customers a transfer-free ride between Oakville and Oshawa.
Metrolinx says schedules for Routes 25 and 30 will be adjusted to better reflect actual travel times and that while travel times on Route 30 will be adjusted, trips will also now serve the Meadowvale Business Park with more stops.
The post says one westbound stop on Mississauga Rd., just south of Derry Rd. will be replaced by a stop nearby on Dupont Meadow Pl., and the route will now serve stops on Syntex Crt. and Financial Dr.
Metrolinx is reminding people to respect the current stay-at-home order and only use transit for essential travel.
