GO Transit has introduced all-day train service seven days a week, and increasing weekend service on its Barrie line.

The Ontario transit agency said new trains will operate weekdays both ways between Union and Aurora GO stations approximately every hour during the midday and evening periods. Officials also said there will be increased morning, late afternoon and late evening service between Union and Bradford stations.

To make connections north to Barrie, new bus services have been created.

As of Saturday, trains will now operate hourly on weekends from the current 75 minutes and connecting buses will be adjusted.

The transit agency started year-round weekend train service at the end of 2016. Before that the line was serviced weekdays during peak periods.
