Default Barrie line - GO

Any existing commuters using GO barrie line to commute downtown Toronto share how busy the trains are during the daily commute to and from Aurora GO?

It's busy but you can always find a seat. The toughest is winter when it snows as parking is filled by the time the 2nd train in the morning.

I take the 7:11am train. I always get a parking space in the garage, though its roughly 90% full. And always get a seat, the train is maybe 80% full after we get on.

The 7:41 train might be tougher for parking if you're running late, people park at Shepherds bush, not a bad walk from there. Still would always get a seat.

There are a lot of parking spaces taken up by the construction on West side. As a result, many parking spaces are reserved. Presumably by peeps taking the last train.

Difficult to get parking for 7:41 and 8:11 trains. Alternatively I started using Gormley station (Richmond Hill Train - Stouffville Road\404). Few mins extra drive and time, but lot of parking space, empty train and easy in/out)

thanks for the feedback, Gormley seems like a viable option, i assume this is based on the 745 train? (just checked the schedule)
