With all the growth we have seen in York Region and South Simcoe, commuting the Toronto is becoming more and more a challenge, with increased cars on the road. It has become a bit of a daunting commute for those who line in Newmarket that commute to the downtown core of Toronto. Thankfully the powers that be at MetroLink have listened to the residents of Newmarket/Aurora and made a few slight changes to the Barrie Go-Train line and added a few more trains both Southbound and Northbound.
There is now 8 trains leaving for Toronto in the morning, with the first Newmarket departure leaving the GoTrain station, at the Tannery mall on Davis Drive, at 6:03am. The next trains leaves a half hour later, at 6:33am, then there are 4 trains in a row in 15 minute increments (6:48am, 7:03am, 7:18am, 7:33am), and then 2 more trains with a half hour gap at 8:03am & 8:33am (final Southbound train).
Northbound also has a total of 8 trains, with different departure increments from Union Station, beginning at 3:40pm, then 4:10pm, 4:40pm, 5:05pm, 5:35pm, 6:05pm, 6:35pm, 7:05pm.
See the pictures to view the departure and corresponding arrival times.
The Newmarket GoTrain station is located at the Tannery Mall, which has a municipal address of 465 Davis Drive, Newmarket. There is 265 parking spaces and has wheel chair accessible train access. If you miss the train, there is also a GoBus that comes by the station, but is not as frequent.
