FALL WEEKEND SERVICE ADJUSTMENTS

There will be changes to Barrie, Lakeshore East and West train service on some weekends this fall, so we can do track and station work to provide reliable and increased service in the future. Plans and dates are subject to change so be sure to check back here for any updates before you travel.

BARRIE

GO buses will replace trains between Rutherford and Allandale Waterfront these weekends:

  • October 14 and 15
  • October 21 and 22
  • November 4 and 5

We’ll be working on the tracks and installing a pedestrian tunnel at Rutherford GO Station to prepare for increased service.

GO Buses will run frequently at all stations between Rutherford and Allandale Waterfront to get you where you need to go. There will be no bus service at York University Station. If you are a York University customer, you can use Rutherford GO to the north, or the Yorkdale Bus Terminal (located at the Yorkdale Mall) to the south. To find the best route, visit triplinx.ca.
