GO Transit service in Bolton extended

Posted on Wednesday June 26, 2019

The Honourable Sylvia Jones, MPP for Dufferin-Caledon, and His Worship Allan Thompson, Mayor of the Town of Caledon, today issued a joint statement announcing the temporary extension of GO Transit service in Bolton.

“This is great news for Dufferin-Caledon and all those who rely on Go Transit out of Bolton to access the Metrolinx system. The two bus routes will provide relief for all residents, from students to seniors, during their daily commutes,” said Jones. “Thank you to the Minister of Transportation, Caroline Mulroney, and the Associate Minister of Transportation (GTA), Kinga Surma, for working with Mayor Thompson and myself to find a solution.”

“This is a vitally important service in Caledon,” said Mayor Allan Thompson.  “Whether for school or business, to get to work or to a medical appointment, for many Caledon residents this is their only mode of transportation to and from the GTA.  I’m grateful to my colleague Sylvia Jones for her involvement in this issue and the province for listening to our concerns and responding so quickly. We look forward to working with Metrolinx to find a long term solution that helps us meet the needs of our residents.”

Metrolinx will be providing details shortly on exact timing and frequency of the routes.

Update (June 26, 2019)

Route 38 GO bus service will continue but with a reduced schedule starting July 2 to maintain transit connections for those in rural communities in Peel and York. We’ll continue to make all existing Route 38 stops.

Buses will connect with Toronto-bound Kitchener line trains at Malton GO Station at 6:46 and 7:46 a.m. on weekdays. In the afternoon at Malton GO, buses will meet the trains that depart Union Station at 3:35 and 5:27 p.m.
