Some GO train commuters may have to change up their routines Tuesday morning.

Metrolinx spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins said it’s because the transit agency has increased service on most of its lines

“We’re introducing so many more new trips that it’s going to require some platform adjustments so people have a lot to pay attention to — one, the schedule with all the new services and number two, you might be getting on it or off (the train) at different platforms,” she explained.

Over the weekend, nearly 150 new and extended weekly train trips were added to the Kitchener, Stouffville, and Lakeshore east and west lines.

The expanded service was announced by the province last month.

The new trips will include late-night weekday service between Kitchener and Toronto’s Union Station and hourly weekday evening service between Brampton and Union Station.

Ontario Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney said the new trips will opening up more than 77,000 seats.
