GO Transit Improves Service to and from Toronto

It’s back and hopefully for good. One of GO Transit’s most traveled routes, Lakeshore West, is upgraded starting today, October 28, 2007. Yes that’s right FULL SERVICE to Aldershot on the weekends. A big win for GTA transit riders in the West. If only this could have extended to Hamilton.

Perhaps Hamilton is in the horizon. Maybe GO could create a transit link to Hamilton Airport with train service to Toronto. With increased local and international flights it would be a perfect alternative to Toronto Island or Toronto Pearson. A new shuttle link there is more logical and cost effective Airport-Public Transit link than a bridge to Toronto Island.

A Hamilton link a dream maybe, but at least we can be sure that fewer 905 cars WON’T enter the city on the weekend. The old bus service could barely accomodate one train car worth of people so having a 10 car train roll further Westward is a godsend. Mike Harris cut the service shortly after the NDP put in the stations and every Provincial government since has been flicking the switch on and off. Hopefully its here for good, then taxpayers will actual have the services we pay for (woo hoo a minor win Joe and Jane public!!!)
