Winnipeg, MB – GO Rail, the operator of GO’s freight rail service to Winnipeg, is opening its new GO Express service to the region on July 1.

It will operate from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., every day.

Passengers can get a day pass by buying a single day pass or by going to a station and paying for two consecutive days of the same pass.
The GO Express will operate on a schedule that matches the one planned by GO.

Passenger rail service was first implemented in the mid-1990s as a means of transporting freight between rail yards in the region.
It is a new service that will add to the already robust rail network in the area.GO CEO Kevin McNaughton said it’s important to start connecting with communities, but also to continue providing a reliable, high-quality service to Manitobans.
“As we get to know our customers better and the service level we’re getting, we think that we’ll be able to keep them coming back to us,” he said.
“The best way to do that is to make sure we’re connecting them with our community.
That’s where our customers are coming from.”GO’s new rail service connects to the existing GO rail network and will bring rail service through Winnipeg’s downtown and out to the suburbs.
