QUICK LINKS: GO Network Status | GO Arrivals/Departures | VIA Rail Arrivals/Departures | TTC Trip Planner (Unofficial)

Guelph added an early shuttle for the new GO trains on August 30. Why hasn’t GRT? KW riders have no transit options to get to early GO trains?

Viewer SCOTT RAMSAY (see comments in post below) added a note that the first two GO trips out of Kitchener do not have any bus service connecting to it. Guelph immediately added an earlier shuttle trip. What gives KW?

Guelph riders have to ‘pre book’ the service (see link below for how) but I’m sure commuters who need it won’t have a problem planning it. Kudos to Guelph for being on the ball. Now riders – use what we have.

Kitchener/Waterloo: what gives? For a region so ‘transit friendly’ they better get in the act of connecting services. This should be mandatory. Post notes in comments to what’s changed, if anything as it happens. Thank you!

Four trains from Kitchener effective yesterday – anyone riding them?

By shost at 8:41 am on Wednesday, September 7, 2016

So, we’ve finally seen an addition of service, nearly five years since the first GO trains out of Kitchener. Anyone riding them? How are they going?

Four trains now depart Kitchener station in the morning with four corresponding departures out of Toronto – and one of the trips runs express from Bramalea to Toronto shaving 12 minutes off the trip.

Welcome news – but will anyone use the earliest and latest departures is the real question. Post your response below.
