S-Bahn Madness

S-Bahn is short for "Stadtschnellbahn" - German for "fast city train". It is usually used to describe a commuter rail service that operates very frequently in both directions, all day. I am officially protesting the use of this term for Canadian applications, because I believe that we need to de-mystify transit in order to encourage more people to use it and to support its expansion.

What is so wrong with saying "all day GO trains" or "better than Lakeshore Line service?" It describes the same concept, only in words the average citizen can understand.
