Temporarily introducing a new branch of a route


21 Milton / Toronto

GO is temporarily cancelling service along several branches of the route “while demand is low”. It’s consolidating the branches to offer passengers more connection options between Square One GO Bus Terminal and most Milton-line GO stations, by operating buses along a new branch of the route.

21W branch

Monday, May 3 is the first day that GO operates buses along this new branch of the route, replacing all service along the former 21D, 21J and 21N branches and most service along the 21E and 21J branches of the route.

Buses along the 21W branch start or end their trips in Lisgar GO Station bus terminal. They operate express - without stopping — to Streetsville GO Station, then drop off or pick up passengers at all stops along the route to Dixie GO Station. The buses then again operate express to Union Station Bus Terminal.

Temporarily cancelling branches of routes


27 Milton / North York

(Buses along the 27B branch usually started or ended their trips in Meadowvale GO Station bus terminal, drop off or pick up passengers at local stops until Mississauga Road / Highway 401, then operate express - without stopping - until York Mills GO Bus Terminal.)

GO is also further decreasing service along the route.
