  • Richmond Hill

    Shorter trains on all trips starting May 3

    Starting May 3, Richmond Hill line trips will be four cars long. This follows a successful trial of four-car trains on some trips we began on April 19. We’re keeping an eye on customer levels and continue to make adjustments to the length of our trains to match demand while using our resources efficiently.

    • Starting Monday, May 3, the southbound 6:56 a.m. trip from Gormley, and the northbound 3:45, 4:45 and 5:45 p.m. trips from Union will have four cars instead of six.
    • Starting Tuesday, May 4, the southbound 7:26 and 8:11 a.m. trips from Gormley, and the northbound 6:45 p.m. trip from Union will have four cars instead of six.
    • Starting Wednesday, May 5, the southbound 6:11 a.m. trip from Gormley will have four cars instead of six.

    Please look down the platform when the train approaches as you may need to adjust where you’re waiting. Be sure to use all available doors to board and listen for station announcements.

    Some coaches may be more popular than others. Please move to another coach to find a more comfortable space.

    We continue to monitor all trips and will make adjustments if needed. We will let you know in advance about any changes.

    Be sure to check the website often for updates.
