PDP #161: End of the Line

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that Toronto couldn't be the city that it is today without GO Transit. Every day more than two hundred thousand people ride its rails and buses, speeding between Toronto and wherever it is they're coming from or going - or, on occasion, between two points that aren't Toronto, but I'm given to understand those trips are in the minority. That puts it ahead of every commuter rail system on the continent except those serving the New York and Chicago metropolitan areas.

This photo was taken at Barrie South GO Station, the northern terminus of the Barrie line and the most remote GO station from Union Station, shortly after the arrival of the first evening train. I always like it when the station platforms are busy. It feels like it makes it all worthwhile.
