Barrie Line Bike Coach Pilot
From July 10 to August 2, select weekend trains running between Toronto’s Union Station and Barrie’s Allandale Waterfront GO will have space for more than 20 bicycles each, thanks to special train cars that are built for storing bikes. People familiar with our seasonal Niagara GO train service will recognize these bike cars.
The Tourism Barrie website has mapped out four road routes for people to explore. With distances ranging from 11 to more than 45 km, customers can explore Northern Barrie, Oro Medonte, and many of Barrie’s heritage landmarks or art galleries.
This is a special pilot program that will run on four consecutive Saturdays and Sundays, plus the August Civic Holiday Monday.
The schedule for these special trains is as follows:
- Trains will leave Union Station at 8:53 a.m., 11:53 a.m., 2:53 p.m. and 5:53 p.m.
- Return trips will depart Allandale GO at 11:08 a.m., 2:08 p.m., 5:08 p.m. and 8:08 p.m.
