    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    This might be the first time i've ever seen change actually happen with what the majority of the general public wanted. Hopefully the enhanced GO service to Bramalea is still set as it could work alongside the UPX to alleviate crowding.

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    GO is surprisingly all day as well. Compared to UPX, it just ends roughly about 90 mins earlier at 11:34PM from Union/11:41PM from Weston on weekdays and 11:51PM from Union/11:17PM from Weston on weekends. When Mount Dennis opens, there might be an even bigger increase in GO service. They could...

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    I don’t think this change was supposed to be a “time savings” type of thing, but a crowding control situation. They were probably aiming for a similar thing that the express/local trains you see on the LSW or Kitchener lines during the PM peak. They kind of do pretty well with not getting both...

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    Its nice to see the 15 and 30 getting (basically) 20 mins Saturday service. 9 getting weekend service in general is great, and hopefully it is timed for those who connect to the GO train at Mount Pleasant. 50 getting a routing change in Etobicoke is really unexpected, but I understand it. The...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Wait… why would they bring back the 21 directly to Union? The very same reason it was detoured to begin with which was due to summer traffic, will now get even worse due to Gardiner construction which will make this route completely unbearable. It would’ve been better if they would go to...

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    Its cool that they still tried to do this despite the shortage. Hopefully in the long run we do see an increase as it’s great to see the better local transit agency do this, the ones that can actually improve the service, and its bidirectional too. No shade to YRT, but if they even got to...

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    Bolton service (41) will be in service starting on April 29, it has already been implemented in the transit schedules. It seems like it will only be running every 2 hours but if ridership does well we could see an increase as we did with the 81 which is the other route that goes into Caledon.

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    Personally, seeing the 501C get rerouted off the 407 and just follow the regular 501 routing is disappointing as it was probably the next best thing to get from Brampton to Toronto in a quick matter apart from the GO train. I understand why they're doing it, they have literally said the reasons...

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Well I think the opening date will get "leaked" under a metrolinx email newsletter a month before its official announcement then they'll try to hide it until then to stir up even more good press.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    If learning anything from new year’s day is that there will be a lot of people rushing to get out as soon as the eclipse is over except this time there will be no subways or GO trains nearby to at least help with the overload so the QEW will be massively jammed for hours (technically its on the...

    Thank you I have just updated my post. Its weird with how they just randomly decided to do that as if they were hiding the article, but it is Metrolinx after all...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Well the fact that weekend service is still a recent implementation as it started just last year, and we finally now have official confirmation that 30 min all day service to Bramalea is happening on weekdays starting at the end of April, its safe to say that Metrolinx can start to do way more...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Clearly they wouldn't reduce service if there wasn't some kind of compromise, and if this is true and it happens then it seems like 30 min GO service to Bramalea is happening. The spur also isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Yes it sure is slow but the trains still get to the Pearson...

    VIVA + York Region Transit

    I think its somewhat confirmed that its going to reroute to Pioneer Village instead. Seen right out the station and also at Steeles/Founders on the north side.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Its more as a special service catered to post secondary students going home for the reading week. It just so happens to be family day weekend as well. Its not surprising that Guelph doesn’t really have that many people going back and forth compared to KW as they somewhat get the short end of...

    VIVA + York Region Transit

    That would ironically spark some major backlash on Brampton, especially as Zum runs better service on that piece of Highway 7 than Viva. If YR added more frequent service to accommodate for the missing frequency (which i doubt) and extend the Viva to Highway 50, then maybe it could work but then...

    GTHA Transit Fare Integration

    This fare integration is basically what it is currently with GO and all the other local 905 agencies, just now with TTC in the mix so it seems like the entire GTHA is connected now. If you go from local agency to local agency (Miway-Brampton or HSR-Burlington for example), then the transfer will...

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    They already somewhat did that, with the 104 Derry Express. Ever since the pandemic it has yet to make a comeback and it probably never will because of that decision with that Sheridan College-Westwood route which acts as another branch to the normal 42 Derry route (which kind of made service on...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    There's a lot that needs to be done with the Kitchener line. Some suggestions could be first of all to introduce more trains per hour overall. 30 min to Bramalea seems likely in the current state while 2 12 car trains per hour along with bike coaches would help a lot. When Mount Dennis opens and...

    VIVA + York Region Transit

    The thing with this is that the damage was already done since the extension opening when YRT and GO got kicked out of serving the campus. Sure there might be some backlash for Brampton but with one fare there is a more fair compromise this time around. Also the benefits that the 501C serving...
