GO Transit Bus Service Coming to Town of Lincoln

September 2, 2016 – Starting Sept. 3, Metrolinx is bringing GO Transit bus service to the Town of Lincoln to connect it to the broader GO network and give more people more transit options.

Route 12 GO bus service, which currently runs between the Burlington GO Park and Ride and the Niagara Falls Bus Terminal, will now stop at the park and ride at Queen Elizabeth Way and Ontario Street in Lincoln. Buses will run seven days a week and will be timed to meet with GO train service at Burlington GO Station.

“Our unprecedented investments and improvements in public transit are helping to make the daily commute more convenient across the region,” said Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation. “Expanding GO bus service to these communities will help people get where they need to be.”

“This new bus service will help our residents move around the region, including to Brock University and Niagara College, and will also connect us to Hamilton and the Greater Golden Horseshoe”, said Sandra Easton, Mayor of the Town of Lincoln. “As we have always said, transit will be part of our future here in Lincoln.”

“We are very pleased to be connecting the Town of Lincoln to the more than 3,000 kilometres of GO train and bus routes that make up our vast network,” said Greg Percy, Chief Operating Officer for Metrolinx. “This new GO bus service will give the people of Lincoln more ways to move around each and every day.”

In addition to the new stop in Lincoln, buses will continue to serve existing stops in Burlington, Hamilton, Grimsby, St. Catharines and Niagara Falls. Visit gotransit.com/schedules for more information.

Metrolinx is planning, building and delivering hundreds of projects and services to get more people moving throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area and beyond. To learn more about Metrolinx and its Regional Transportation Plan, visit metrolinx.com.
