GO Bus off to a GO-od Start

November 7, 2009 at 1:29 pm Leave a comment

During last Saturday’s launch, 210 people stepped aboard the green and white GO buses, with roughly 30 people on each of the seven trips. One GO bus can take as many as 57 passengers, which potentially can take 50 cars off Highway 401 to the GTA.

On weekdays, regular trips will run eastbound and westbound, serving the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, Kitchener Bus Terminal, Cambridge Smart Centre (The GO bus stops at the iXpress bus stops across from The Keg Restaurant in Cambridge SmartCentre, off Pinebush Road.), Aberfoyle GO park-and-ride lot, Milton park-and-ride lot at Hwy. 401 and RR 25, and Mississauga Square One GO bus terminal.

Additional trips during rush hour will offer connecting service at Milton GO Station to GO Train trips to and from Union Station.

The new service will run on weekends and holidays as well, with trips serving the Milton park-and-ride lot and Square One (not Milton GO Station).

A ride from Cambridge to Milton is $8.60, and $11.15 to Mississauga’s Square One. Tickets are available from the bus drivers, at GO transit stations, at the GRT Kitchener bus terminal and at the University of Waterloo’s student life centre. A Cambridge ticket sales location has yet to be announced.
