Extra Lakeshore trains after special events

This September we’ll have extra trains on the Lakeshore line to get you home more comfortably after special events.

There will be extra homebound Lakeshore West trains following the Blue Jays games on September 8-10, 19, 20, 22-24, and following the TFC game on September 30.

There will be extra homebound Lakeshore East trains following the Blue Jays games on September 9, 19, 20, 23, 24, and following the TFC game on September 30.

These trips will not appear in GO schedules as departure times will depend on when the events end and passenger volumes. Be sure to check the departure board and listen for announcements.

During this time, you may experience up to 10 minutes of additional travel time due to large crowds following special events at Union Station and Exhibition GO.
