go bus toronto route change

People in Toronto are angry about a recently cancelled bus route

Passengers commuting between Toronto and Mississauga using GO Transit claim they are experiencing much longer travel times after Metrolinx introduced several route changes last month, including the elimination of one bus route that connected to the city's key transit hub. 

GO Transit's Route 21 bus, which previously provided service between Milton and Toronto's Union Station, has an altered route now due to on-going efforts to refurbish the Gardiner Expressway, according to Metrolinx. 

Instead of catching a 40-minute bus directly from Mississauga to Union Station, commuters now must take a bus to one of three train stations on the Lakeshore West GO train line to connect to Union Station. 

The adjusted bus route now connects to GO train stations at Oakville, Clarkson, and Port Credit. 

The same goes for the return trip — travellers must take a GO train from Union Station to one of the three stops on the Lakeshore West line and then connect to a bus to continue with their trip. 

Passengers claim what used to be an easy-going and straightforward commute has transformed into a connection-based nightmare that pushes one-way travel times to two hours. 

Metrolinx said in a statement that changes on Route 21 will provide "more consistent travel times by diverting service from highway congestion and planned construction."
