New Service Updates and Exciting Changes Starting June 24th

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                                June 21, 2023

WATERLOO REGION – The Ontario Government, alongside Metrolinx, is pleased to announce important modifications to the GO Bus schedules that will positively impact commuters in Waterloo Region. As part of the province’s commitment to enhancing the customer experience and adapting to evolving demands, key updates to services in Kitchener have been announced, including additional GO Bus trips on weekdays and weekends.

“My neighbours and constituents have been loud and clear on wanting expanded GO Transit options, and our Government has responded to fix the issue with added trips on weekdays and weekends,” said Mike Harris, Member of Provincial Parliament for Kitchener-Conestoga. “The expanded GO Bus service will give residents in our communities and across Waterloo Region the flexibility to get to and from the GTA more easily and frequently. More transit options naturally lead to more opportunities for people to move about for work, school and recreation while reducing gridlock and hassle along the 401 corridor.”

GO Bus service is being added on routes 30 and 31 for customers in Waterloo Region:

  • Three new eastbound weekend trips will depart University of Waterloo at 9:17 a.m., 10:12 a.m., and 11:12 a.m., and arrive at Bramalea GO at 10:42 a.m., 11:42 a.m. and 12:42 p.m.
  • Five new westbound weekend trips will depart Bramalea GO at 4:40 p.m., 5:40 p.m., 6:40 p.m., 7:40 p.m. and 8:40 p.m., and arrive at University of Waterloo at 6:10 p.m., 7:10 p.m., 8:10 p.m., 9:05 p.m. and 10:05 p.m.
  • Two new eastbound weekday trips will depart University of Waterloo at 3:18 p.m. and 4:18 p.m., and arrive at Bramalea GO at 5:03 p.m. and 6:03 p.m.

The updates are available for GO Transit customers at www.GOTransit.com.
