GO adding Hamilton train in 2009

(Hamilton Spectator)

Hamilton is getting an extra morning GO Train early in 2009.

GO Transit announced recent track improvements will allow the Toronto-bound train which leaves Oakville at 7:58 a.m. to start its run from Burlington Aldershot at 7:32 a.m. on Jan. 5.

This 12-car train will originate in Hamilton later in early 2009 when the Hamilton train layover site is finished.

The train will run as an express from Oakville to Union Station.

GO made the announcement along with other service changes including two early, ‘homebound’ trains on the Lakeshore lines, one westbound and one eastbound.

Starting Jan. 5, a new weekday westbound train will leave Union station at 3:15 p.m., operating express to Clarkson and making all stops to Burlington. A similar eastbound train will leave Union at 5:10 p.m.

These new trips are intended to relieve crowding, meeting growing ridership needs, Go Transit said in a statement.
