GO Transit adds Mount Joy trains

On Jan. 6, GO Transit plans to add two weekday trains to its new Mount Joy station in Markham, Ontario.

One morning and one afternoon late rush-hour train will be extended beyond Markham station to Mount Joy, which opened in December with three rush-hour trains in each direction. A new fourth-morning train will leave the station at 8:37 a.m; a new evening train will arrive at 7:15 p.m.

"Making transit more convenient is key to attracting more riders," Transportation Minister Norm Sterling said in a prepared statement.

GO Transit carries more than 43 million passengers a year, linking Toronto with the surrounding "Golden Horseshoe" regions. Last year, the Ontario Government resumed control of GO Transit as part of a 10-year, $3.25 billion transit plan.
