Metrolinx announced they will be ceasing GO bus services to York’s Keele campus. The busses will be rerouted to the Highway 407 subway terminal, where students, staff, and faculty will have to take the subway the rest of their commute.
The announcement was made November 6. However, according to VP Campaigns for YFS, Sebastién Lalonde, YFS and personnel from the university administration had a meeting on November 9, where the university expressed they had knowledge of the change since October 16.
According to Lalonde: “They had said they were embargoed by GO, but they found out about the changes on October 16. Because they were embargoed, GO and the university had to figure out what the media strategy was going to be. YFS found out two hours before the notice.”
