Commuters frustrated with reduced GO train coaches despite more frequent service
CTV Excerpt
May 25, 2020

TORONTO -- Commuters using the Lakeshore East GO Line may experience more frequent service as of Monday, but it will be paired with a reduction of coaches on the trains, a decision that left some riders frustrated over the lack of physical distancing available.

When Janet Stevenson went to get on the Lakeshore East Line at 6:57 a.m. in Pickering Monday morning, she said she was surprised to hear an announcement being broadcast saying that the 12-coach train she usually rides on had been reduced to six coaches, including one accessibility coach with a reserved lower level.

“It was already evident it was going to be a much fuller train and it would be far more difficult to physically distance,” the community health-care worker told CTV News Toronto. “Now all trains are full stops. There are no express trains. More people just continued to get on.”

CBC Excerpt
July 17, 2020

Ontario reported 111 additional cases of COVID-19 on Friday, as a large swath of the province moved into the next phase of the government's recovery plan.

Provincial transit agency Metrolinx also makes face coverings mandatory on GO buses and trains Friday, as well as on the UP Express as of Tuesday.

Staff will be onboard vehicles to inform customers about the policy, said the agency, adding that people should be understanding of riders who can't wear a face covering due to pre-existing conditions.
