GO buses roll into Waterloo Region, starting October 31

Saturday, October 31 may be Hallowe’en, but GO Transit isn’t disguising the fact that its buses start rolling between Waterloo Region and Mississauga for the first time that day.

Eleven eastbound buses operate Mondays to Fridays from the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University and downtown Kitchener to Mississauga’s City Centre at Square One. The buses stop in Cambridge (probably close to Highway 401), the Aberfoyle “Park and Ride” carpool lot, just south of Guelph at County Road 46 and the 401 and the Milton “Park and Ride” at Halton Regional Highway 25 and the 401.

Two eastbound buses also stop at the Milton GO Station during morning rush hours to drop off passengers wanting to connect with an eastbound 21 Milton GO train to downtown Toronto.

Twelve westbound buses reverse the routing. Two of those westbound buses also stop at Milton GO Station to pick up passengers from westbound GO trains.

Buses also operate on Saturdays, Sundays and weekends.

In February, the governments of Canada and Ontario committed $2.5 million to help build four park and ride lots along the new bus route. The first of these lots is the Milton lot. (Milton Transit’s strategic plan identified building this lot as a priority.) GO is studying where to build the three other carpool lots along the Highways 401 and 8 corridors in the Cambridge / Kitchener / Waterloo area. Funding for these facilities is part of the GO Transit Improvement Program (GO-TRIP).
