GO Transit: Off By One Day

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

I noticed this announcement:

Starting Tuesday, November 1, GO Transit is responding to passengers who asked for more stops along the 71 Uxbridge - Union route.

Some at peak times only, some at other times, but take a look at the West Aurora area - it only applies during off-peak times on a certain type of day!
