The Brampton Guardian has just

The Brampton Guardian has just announced a significant expansion of GO Train service between Toronto and Brampton, effective April 29, 2002. According to the article, an additional early morning train will depart Brampton GO station for Union, followed by three round trips between Union and Bramalea. To quote the article: “Three new trains will leave the Bramalea station in the east end of the city between 10 a.m.-2 p.m., headed for Union Station in Toronto. The other three trains will leave Union Station between 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., bringing passengers back to the Bramalea Station.”

These trains replace certain GO buses, and GO and Brampton Transit will reroute its service so that there will be buses to meet the trains at Bramalea station, ready to whisk passengers throughout the city, and to Georgetown and Guelph.

Bramalea is the terminus and starting point for these three trains because the line between Bramalea GO station and Brampton GO station is single-tracked and heavily used by freights. Perhaps if money is spent on additional tracks, we will see these three trains operating all the way into downtown Brampton.

So, the Georgetown line is now a step away from “all-day, two-way” service!
