GO has announced changes to Barrie and Stouffville line GO Train schedules.

Here are the announcements:

Starting June 29, we’re extending four weekend train trips to Allandale Waterfront GO. There will be changes to some weekend train and bus trips to fit the extended train trips into the schedules.

  • If you’re going to Barrie, trains at 11:40 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. will take you from Union Station to Allandale Waterfront GO, making all stops.
  • If you’re coming from Barrie, trains at 4:20 p.m. and 8:40 p.m. will take you from Allandale Waterfront GO to Union Station, making all stops.
  • We’ve also scheduled a number of trips to depart 10 to 30 minutes later to fit the extended trips into the weekend schedules.

Some weekend trains will go from 12 to 6 coaches to be more in line with ridership. There will still be ample room for customers:

  • The 2:01 p.m., 6:21 p.m. (changed from 6:11 p.m.) and 10:41 p.m. (changed from 10:11 p.m.) southbound trains from Aurora, and the 1p.m., 4 p.m. and 8:20 p.m. (changed from 8:10 p.m.) northbound trains from Union Station will be six coaches long instead of 12.

Be sure to check your new schedule.

We’ve partnered with Ontario Northland to make it easy to get to cottage country this summer. On Fridays from June 28 to August 30, an Ontario Northland bus will connect at Allandale Waterfront GO with the 4:10 p.m. Barrie line GO train from Union Station to take you to the Muskoka region. Return trips on Sundays from June 30 to September 1 connect to the 4:20 p.m. train from Allandale Waterfront GO making all stops to Toronto. Find out more here.
