GO Train Extends Service Across GTA

The Ontario government will soon begin the largest GO train service expansion in more than a decade.

More than 300 trips per week are being added on the Milton, Lakeshore West, Lakeshore East, Kitchener and Stouffville lines. It’s a 15 percent increase in weekly trips that the province says will give commuters more choice to get where they need to go faster.

Starting April 28th,, weekend train service will increase from every 30 minutes to every 15 minutes in the afternoon and evening on the Lakeshore West and Lakeshore East lines between Oakville GO Station, Union Station and Durham College Oshawa GO Station. Riders on the Kitchener line will also see new 30-minute weekday service during midday and evenings between Bramalea and Union Station.

“As Ontario’s population continues to grow, our government is investing in a world-class transit network that connects communities and people to good jobs and affordable housing,” said Prabmeet Sarkaria, Minister of Transportation. “We’re delivering on our plan to bring more reliable, convenient two-way, all-day GO train service to commuters in the Greater Golden Horseshoe.”

In a release, the province explains that it is adding evening train service seven days a week on the Stouffville line, as well as an additional morning rush hour trip to Union Station for commuters in Milton and an afternoon rush hour trip from Union Station to Milton GO. For transit riders going to and from Pearson Airport, every second UP Express train (every 30 minutes) will be non-stop between Union Station and Pearson Airport, providing commuters with a more direct and convenient option for airport transfers seven days a week.
