GO Transit says a fatality on the Barrie line suspended train service Wednesday afternoon. Trains have since resumed service.
As a result of an earlier fatality, #GOtrain service on the Barrie Line is currently suspended. For passengers traveling to both York University GO and Downsview Park GO, you may use your GO fare to connect to TTC.— Barrie Train (@GOtransitBR) October 16, 2019
GO Transit stopped all trains at Maple GO Station until shortly after 5:00, while no buses were made available beyond that. GO Transit says over 8,000 people depend on the Barrie Line, and there are not enough buses to go around. Regular service resumed several hours after it was first suspended, while the police investigation continues.
The fatality was reported just north of Maple GO Station, while a cause of this death was not immediately made available by police.
