[Starting Saturday, **January 23**](/archives/weblog/2021/01/20-go_replaci.shtml), GO replaces trains with buses all day Saturdays, Sundays and holidays and Monday-to-Friday evenings. According to the transit agency, "we are temporarily replacing select GO train service with buses to better match [passenger] demand." Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of riders aboard GO trains has decreased by more than 90 per cent.
Metrolinx and GO **plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service** [along the Stouffville line](http://www.metrolinx.com/en/greaterregion/projects/stouffville-go-expansion.aspx), as part of their **[GO Expansion Program](http://www.metrolinx.com/en/greaterregion/projects/go-expansion.aspx)** (formerly "[regional express rail](/archives/weblog/2014/04/17-ontario_go.shtml)").
