Train Schedule Changes

Trains
Last Updated: September 26, 2018 | 02:47:50 AM
  • Lakeshore West
    Update

    Starting September 24, we're introducing 220 new GO train trips per week for Lakeshore East and West customers - our biggest increase of GO train service in five years.

    • On Lakeshore East, we're doubling midday, weekday, two-way service between Oshawa and Union, with trains every 15 minutes or better throughout much of the day.
    • On Lakeshore West, we're introducing 50 per cent more midday, weekday, two-way train service between Oakville and Union Monday to Friday - that's an extra train every hour.

    With hundreds of new trips between our busy morning and evening peak travel periods, we’re taking the thinking out of travelling - whether travelling east or west, from dawn to dusk.

    Service Changes Starting September 4

    Starting September 4, the 3:15 p.m. weekday westbound train from Union Station to Oakville will be extended to Burlington, arriving at 4:16 p.m.

    The 4:25 p.m. weekday eastbound train from Aldershot GO will depart four minutes later, with times at stations through to Exhibition GO also later. Arrival at Union Station at 5:35 p.m. remains the same.

    To give you more room and provide a more comfortable ride, we’re expanding the following trips from 10 to 12 coaches long:

    • 9:18 a.m., 2:13 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 6:43 p.m. and 11:43 p.m. westbound trips from Union Station
    • 10:36 a.m., 3:28 p.m. and 8:01 p.m. eastbound trips from Aldershot GO

    To better manage our resources, the 3:15 p.m. westbound trip from Union Station and 4:29 p.m. eastbound trip from Aldershot GO will now be 10 coaches long instead of 12.

    Be sure to check the schedule for details.




    Fall service reductions

    Throughout the fall, there will be a number of service adjustments on the Barrie, Lakeshore East and Lakeshore West lines as we work on the tracks to bring you faster and more frequent GO service.

    We need to adjust train trips in order to do bridge, level crossing and platform work. This work can only be completed when trains aren’t running, so we’re doing the work over the weekends, which aren’t as busy, to minimize the disruption to you.

    For nine weekends this fall, there will be several service adjustments on the line while we take portions of track out of service and restore six century-old bridges. Weekend trains will run hourly, bypassing Mimico and Exhibition. Train service will be available between Union and Exhibition.

    • The scheduled weekends are:
      • September 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, 29-30
      • October 13-14, 20-21, 27-28
      • November 24-25
      • December 1-2

    • If you’re travelling westbound:
      • all trains leaving Union Station will only operate at 43 minutes past the hour, and the 6:43 train will be the first train of the day;
      • trains that would normally leave Union Station at 13 minutes past the hour are cancelled, all day Saturday and Sunday.
    • If you’re travelling eastbound:
      • all trains leaving Aldershot GO will only operate at one minute past the hour, and the 7:01 train will be the first train of the day;
      • trains that normally leave Aldershot at 31 minutes past the hour will not operate all day Saturday and Sunday with the exception of the 11:31 pm train departing Aldershot
    • Please expect delays of about 15 minutes as the trains detour on the Milton line after they depart Long Branch GO.

    • There will be no service to Mimico GO Station during these weekends.
      • Because we have to detour around the bridges undergoing rehabilitation, trains cannot travel on their normal route. All six bridges are located between Exhibition and Long Branch GO Stations.
      • Trains travelling between Union Station and Long Branch will detour on the Milton line.

    You can find out more details about Exhibition service and what’s happening at Mimico here.
