wifi appears to be making a return.

on another not, heading out to Guelph and Kitchener today to see how the public is responding to the introduction of the midday and the late evening train.

 

Ford and his government have done some pretty crappy things, but in terms of GO transit specifically (service not stations and other stuff) they’ve done pretty good. Mind you, I know most of everything has been planned for a while By our previous government

I think that this Ontario Northland and Go transit partnership should continue year round. Who wants to drive the 400 in a snow storm? I dont! It would be nice if they could have connecting bus service to Collingwood and other cities in cottage country.

I would agree! Not many people who don't have a car (and wanted to hit the slopes at Blue Mountain ski resort in Collingwood) really wanted the Ontario Northland/GO Transit partnership to continue!

As for Uber from the Barrie South and/or Allandale Waterfront to the ski resort, the cost can be very prohibitive. It would be nice if the Blue Mountain ski resort should offer bus trips through bus.com to shuttle the winter sports revellers from the Allandale Waterfront (or Barrie South) GO station. That's my wish list - unless I launch a petition demanding such a service to be offered!

Doesn’t Simcoe County now operate a Linx bus from Barrie to Collingwood?

It does, but you have to transfer to two different buses.

Also, one of their routes only operates during the weekdays (IIRC, the Barrie-Wasaga Beach bus).

String of wheel thefts targeting trucks at GO stations extends along Lakeshore West route

I honestly hope that since Metrolinx appears to be hell bent on running what amounts to a large in-house police department between the special constables and revenue protection squads that, as an organization, they're taking this seriously and doing some aggressive patrolling of the parking lots to deter criminals doing things like this.

Did they ever get a handle on the tweakers with sawzalls stealing catalytic converters in the ‘Shwa?

I've been wondering the same thing.  Oshawa's also had problems with car thefts outright.  One lady I work with and her husband have gotten off the train in Oshawa twice now only to discover their car's been stolen, and they had a catalytic converter stolen out of another car.
