“when jim was my boyfriend, he would begin his mornings on the go train from burlington to union and i would board the train in oshawa. our meeting/dating point was union station for almost two years! for me, it was the anticipation of seeing him for a few minutes in the morning before heading to work in the lab at the hospital. he worked right downtown in the business district and would sometimes walk with me down university avenue before we parted for the day. in the evenings, we would once again meet at union, sometimes catching a raptors or leafs game or supper before going our separate ways on our eastbound and westbound lakeshore journeys home. the go train was a big part of our lives as we dated, became engaged and then married. while engaged and then married, we took the go train together from oshawa; we would chat or fall asleep or do the daily crossword. it's been 17 years since we first met and the go train is still a big part of our connection. now, we frequently take our boys on the go train to events downtown and always reminisce about those trips to see each other using the go. my (now) husband and i also have the go train to thank for connecting us❤” -joanne and jim kniaz, lakeshore east and west

“i was 23 years old and just got a job downtown to start my career. i was walking up the platform with my mom to board the train and there he was, the conductor on the train; he waved and wished me a good morning, i was smitten!!! my mom even thought he was handsome and from that day forward we spoke 45 min in morning and 45 min in the evenings, every day! it became my favourite part of the day and i gushed about him to everyone, calling him my “go train guy”. finally he asked me out on a date; a date that turned into 13 hours - ice skating, dinner, and a bar after to watch ufc. he then proposed in 2010, mimicking that first date by taking me skating and asking me to marry him on the ice! we have now been married for almost 7 years and have a 1.5 year old son 💕💕” -melissa, richmond hill + lakeshore west

« j'avais 23 ans à l'époque et je venais tout juste de commencer ma carrière; j'avais d'ailleurs trouvé un emploi au centre-ville. un jour, je marchais le long du quai avec ma mère pour aller prendre le train et je l'ai vu : c'était le conducteur du train, il m'a salué de la main et m'a souhaité une bonne journée. pour moi, c'était le coup de foudre!!! ma mère m'a même dit qu'il était très beau. à partir de ce jour-là, nous avons commencé à discuter 45 min le matin et 45 min le soir, tous les jours de la semaine! c'était rendu ma partie préférée de la journée et je n'arrêtais pas de parler de lui à tout le monde, c'était mon "gars du train de go". enfin, il m'a invitée à un rendez-vous galant – un rendez-vous qui a fini par s'étaler sur 13 heures, avec d'abord du patin à glace, ensuite le souper et finalement un bar pour regarder l'ufc. en 2010, il m'a demandée en mariage après m'avoir fait revivre notre premier rendez-vous. il a fait la demande sur la glace! nous sommes mariés depuis près de 7 ans maintenant et nous avons un fils d'un an et demi 💕💕 »

“27 years ago as children, ryan and i attended a birthday party for a little girl we both happened to know. we played together, enjoyed delicious cake, and sat in anticipation as the birthday girl opened each of her gifts. we didn’t know it back then, but we were destined to meet again years later.
as teenagers, ryan and i went to high school together. ryan, two years older, passed me in the halls without notice. but i noticed ryan, as he was as the star of the school’s basketball team. still, it would be years before we exchanged our first words…
finally, our paths crossed again in university. the unionville go station was the romantic place where we first spoke to one another. ryan, being the confident person that he is, approached me after i got off the bus and struck up a conversation. we chatted for a while before exchanging numbers and he waited with me at the station until my dad picked me up. he called me the very same day, and the nine years that followed brought us incredibly close.
in september 2015, we got engaged, and we were married almost two years later on june 3, 2017. we are loving the newlywed life as best friends. thank you go transit for bringing us together!” -christina, unionville #gostories #loveonthego

“what i’m most proud of is the engineering medal i received for my contributions to the transportation industry and designing the first bi-level train. at the time, this medal was only given out to three out of 30,000 engineers… transit is about improving people’s lives. it’s about connecting them to what matters, whether it’s a family member, school, a new job. [it] is more important today than it was then.” – norm kuster, original go employee, retired 1989

thank you, norm, for letting us come visit to talk transit and check out all your cool memorabilia. see norm’s collection and learn more about the early days of go at blog.metrolinx.com #gostories ---------------------------------------- « ma plus grande fierté, c’est la médaille de génie que j’ai reçue pour mes contributions à l’industrie du transport et la conception du tout premier train à deux étages. à cette époque, cette médaille n’était décernée qu’à trois ingénieurs sur 30 000... le transport en commun sert à améliorer la vie des gens. cela sert également à relier les gens à ce qui est important pour eux, qu’il s’agisse d’un membre de leur famille, leur école ou un nouvel emploi. c’est beaucoup plus important maintenant qu’auparavant. » – norm kuster, ancien employé de go, retraité depuis 1989

merci, norm, de nous avoir invités pour parler de transport en commun et pour admirer votre collection de souvenirs. nous sommes reconnaissants de toutes les contributions du personnel au fil des années, alors que nous nous développons afin de mieux desservir la région. admirez la collection de norm et apprenez-en davantage sur les débuts de go ici : blogue.metrolinx.com
