In addition some other weekday trains have been altered as follows:

The eastbound train from Aldershot at 17:31 will now operate as a local train, making all stops to Union station and arriving at 18:41.

The eastbound train from Union Station now departing at 16:45 will now depart at 16:43 to make it line up with the other departures.  The 18:43 eastbound train from Union Station departing at 18:43 will now stop at all stations along its route.

The westbound train from Pickering departing at 07:55 will now stop at Eglinton at 08:16 instead of 08:14.

The westbound train from Union Station, currently departing 1t 15:15, will depart at 15:13 instead, and the 16:13 westbound train will be extended to Aldershot.While this is not a total increase in service, especially on the weekend, but it is a huge increase of service and is much awaited.  I am glad to see the improvement in the service.  And it is a huge investment on the part of GO Transit and Metrolinx
