    While GO has not posted service changes for September, YRT has unintentionally announced an additional 8th train round trip on the Barrie Line, approx. 20~30 minutes later than the current last morning/evening train. https://www.yrt.ca/en/schedules-and-maps/service-changes.aspx
  3. Oakville Transit

    Route 14 will be modified September 2017 so that every 2nd bus travels via Burloak Drive (14A) instead of Great Lakes Drive (14), during weekdays before 7pm and Saturdays before 8pm. No words on changes to route 17. http://oakvilletransit.ca/tsu-17aug02.html

    Metrolinx is proposing a 3% fare increase for all trips currently more than $5.65. Also, new fare zones will be created for Dixie and Renforth Transitway stations - looks like we'll see GO buses on the Mississauga Transitway very soon.

  10. The CIT thread...

    Neither Auger Métropolitan nor Veolia used number schemes like that, and I think this is a 2016 model...
  11. The CIT thread...

    Spotted CITSO/Transdev 8063-33-6 with another fleet number 6076 beside it... Anyone know the reason / history of this coach? It's not listed on wiki. https://www.flickr.com/photos/dj_surf_lfs/34581639752/

  15. GO Transit

    Barrie Line trains will be suspended and replaced by buses on April 22-23 and May 6-7, to accommodate installation of pedestrian underpass at Maple GO station. Of interesting note is the 68D service, which will run non-stop between Barrie (Allandale Waterfront, Barrie South) and Union Station. There will be a total of 3 inbound trips in the morning and 4 outbound trips in the afternoon. This will be the first GO bus route to run along Hwy 400 north of Hwy 9 in a very long time. http://www.gotransit.com/timetables/en/schedules/schedules_window.aspx?tableid=65&dir=N&date=2017-05-07&parentid=1
