GO Transit and Ontario Northland are enroute to partner for a second year to offer combined train-bus service north from the GTA, to Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, Huntsville and North Bay Friday afternoons, with a return trip on Sunday.


The service will commence on June 28. 


“GO Transit-Ontario Northland service between Toronto and North Bay is a convenient and affordable way for people to enjoy everything summer has to offer in Nipissing,” said MPP Vic Fedeli in a release on Monday. 


Friday afternoons between June 28th and August 30th, people can buy a combined ticket to take the 4:10 p.m. GO train from Union Station to Allandale Waterfront GO Station to meet an Ontario Northland coach that will continue to Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, Huntsville and North Bay.


Return bus trips will connect with the GO train leaving Allandale Waterfront GO Station at 4:20 p.m. every Sunday from June 30th to September 1st.


Tickets went on sale on Monday, June 17, 2019 on Ontario Northland’s website.


“Connecting GO Transit and Ontario Northland is a smart use of our province’s existing public transportation network to make taking public transit easier and faster for people,” said Fedeli.


“This is another way that our government is making Ontario open for business and supporting local tourism in Nipissing.”
