From the Government of Ontario, and with thanks to longtime reader and contributor Nick Alexandrou for the news link

“Starting on October 31, residents and commuters will be able to catch the GO Bus between Kitchener-Waterloo and Mississauga with stops in Cambridge, Milton and Aberfoyle.

Buses will run on weekdays to and from Mississauga’s Square One Mall with 11 eastbound trips and 12 westbound trips. Stops in Southwestern Ontario will include Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo and downtown Kitchener.

In addition, two trips in each direction will stop at the Milton GO Station to connect with peak-period GO Train service to and from Union Station. There will also be limited weekend service.”

Great news, GO is finally coming to Waterloo region 6 years after it was first announced. Kudos to Waterloo Region council for turning around and allowing more choice to the traveller.

Does GO itself have any information/details? I can’t seem to find any on their site.

A great start. Let’s hope the Guelph to KW ( and KW to Guelph) commuters are not left out in the cold too long. There are a lot of us! We need a realistic mass transit connection linking the two cities.

sadly there is no connection for Guelph-KW-Cambridge. I think we need Guelph Transit to run a shuttle to Aberfoyle GO to connect tot he Waterloo service!
