Extra Lakeshore Trains for Major Downtown Events

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

There will be extra homebound Lakeshore West and Lakeshore East trains following the Grey Cup on November 27, and the TFC game on November 30.

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