London GO Train Service

Metrolinx’s arrangement to operate service between London and Toronto was established with CN and VIA Rail Canada to operate with the existing infrastructure, including tracks and stations. The arrangement with CN and VIA ends this fall and Metrolinx will no longer have access to the infrastructure. Therefore, the London GO pilot will not operate after October 13, 2023. We remain committed to serving commuters and will look to redeploy those assets where appropriate to meet demand.

Bringing luggage on board

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate large amounts of luggage on rush hour trains, and aisles should be kept clear to keep all customers safe as they move through the train.
