Open letter to GO TransitDear GO Transit
As the days grow shorter and the weather becomes cooler, the trees in the Caledon hills will begin their spectacular transformation to autumn glory, and thousands will travel from all corners of the GTA to see the sights. As the town has lovely nature trails, courting cyclists by rolling out bicycle racks onto the Orangeville GO bus service will help reduce traffic on the rural roads which were never designed for the volume of cars that a late October weekend normally brings.
General service increases and weekend service is needed to more effectively serve as an excursion service, but there if the success of the Credit Valley Explorer excursion train is any indication, then I anticipate such a venture to very popular with the public and with area residents who will be able to access their property much more easily.
Of course, once these increased frequencies are put in place it would be irresponsible to remove them, as the public would have been grown accustomed to the big green buses providing an alternative to driving.
