If people didn't drive like assholes, we wouldn't have situations like this

So apparently a truck hit an overpass in Weston last night and FUBAR'ed most of the Georgetown line. Lots of people flocked to Yorkdale to catch the GO 35 bus to Brampton and "points west". The Yorkdale GO bus terminal was packed like a zoo on the opening day of a unicorn exhibit.

The usual from GO:
** Georgetown GO Train Passengers: Due to a dump truck striking the railway bridge at Weston Rd., service on the Georgetown line is currently suspended. Passengers travelling to Bloor, Weston and Etobicoke North may use their GO tickets to get on the TTC at Union Station to travel to their stations. Passengers travelling west of Etobicoke North may travel from Union to Yorkdale subway station to access GO Buses travelling to Malton, Bramalea, Brampton, Mount Pleasant and Georgetown stations.**

Much later they detoured some trains up the Barrie corridor to cut across and only serve Bramalea and beyond.

I was at Union around 4:00 when the "GT wait" to "GT cancelled" went up on the board and a massive round of groans followed. I can only imagine what time some of those people got home. Thousand's inconvenienced because of one bad driver indeed!

The Milton Line was also quite busy with passengers detouring to Meadowvale to catch the bus York University bus that serves Bramalea GO station. And yes... Union was absolutely crazy! It's a miracle I was able to make it all the way to platform 27.
