How is service working? Seems like all tracks are out?

COVID-19 replaced trains on the Barrie Line weekend evenings and weekends with buses. Which means more time and space available for the construction.

See link.

Service changes start January 23

COVID-19 has changed how we think and behave. We know we need to operate our services differently and will continue to monitor and adapt as necessary.

Starting Saturday, January 23, we are temporarily replacing select GO train service with buses to better match customer demand.

Weekday evening and weekend trains replaced by bus service

Weekday evening and weekend trains on the Barrie line will be temporarily replaced by buses to make better use of resources while demand is low.

The schedule of the replacement buses will be different than current train times, with some buses departing earlier. Travel time on the buses will also be longer than on the train so give yourself extra time to get to where you are going. If you're using PRESTO, tap on the device when boarding and exiting the GO bus. Don't tap on the machines at the station.

Some customers will need to transfer buses at Aurora GO or East Gwillimbury GO. Some replacement buses do not stop at East Gwillimbury or Newmarket GO. Check the schedules for other GO bus options available. Use to help plan your trip.

GO buses will not serve Downsview Park or Bradford GO. Downsview Park customers can take the TTC. Bradford GO customers can take GO Bus Route 68.
