As of Sept. 3, many new runs to Waterloo Region and Brantford will be added to GO Transit’s schedule.
The list includes two new morning GO trains from Kitchener to Toronto, with departure times now at 5:24 a.m., 6:04 a.m. and 6:47 a.m.
Those trips will arrive at Union Station at 7:27 a.m., 7:55 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. respectively.
In the afternoon, the 4:50 p.m. train from Union will now arrive in Kitchener 12 minutes earlier, at 6:45 p.m.
Two afternoon trips that previously ended in Georgetown will now be extended into Kitchener – one running from 5:20 p.m. to 7:27 p.m., the other from 6:50 p.m. to 8:57 p.m.
Sept. 3 also marks the start of GO bus service running between Cambridge and Milton, as well as dozens of express buses travelling between Kitchener and the GO station in Bramalea.
Buses will leave the Ainslie Street terminal at 5:44 a.m., 6:09 a.m., 6:37 a.m. and 7:16 a.m., stopping at the intersection of Hespeler and Pinebush roads nine minutes later. Travel time from there to Milton’s GO station varies between 36 and 46 minutes.
Eight bus trips will head in the other direction through the afternoon and evening, with the first departing Milton at 1:45 p.m. and the last at 8:05 p.m., all arriving at Ainslie Street about an hour later.
The Kitchener-Bramalea buses will run hourly in both directions, with additional trips during the morning and afternoon commutes.
