According to the Toronto Star’s Tess Kalinowski, Weston will enjoy off-peak GO Train service at hourly intervals after Labour Day. Readers may be aware of the commuter-oriented GO Train schedule (which operates on weekdays only).
There are eight morning trains between Weston and Union beginning at 6:12 and ending at 9:57.
In the evening, seven trains offer the return service between 3:30 and 6:50. Metrolinx will soon make an announcement regarding hourly train service in both directions between Union and Mount Pleasant which is one stop east of Georgetown.
This upgrade in service may be of comfort to people who would like to travel in the middle of the day outside of the traditional commute times and it will be interesting to see if there are changes to the existing train times.
The article states that the Stouffville line will see a similar upgrade later on in the year.
This upgrade to service will take some of the sting out of watching an unaffordable (and nearly empty) UP Express train service passing through Weston every fifteen minutes between Union and the airport.
That service is seven days a week, nineteen hours a day.
Metrolinx is expected to make an official announcement mid-month.
