Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton and Niagara commuters who regularly use GO Transit’s Lakeshore West and Kitchener lines will notice some schedule changes and more express trips on their routes soon.

In a Dec. 1 blog post, Mike Winterburn, a senior writer with Metrolinx News, said the new trips will launch on Monday, Dec. 5. He also said minor adjustments are being made to schedules on the Stouffville and Milton Lines.

According to the blog, commuters who travel east on the Lakeshore West line should note that the 5:57 a.m. trip from Niagara Falls will now leave at 6:41 a.m. and run express to Clarkson and onto Union Station, arriving at 9:04 a.m. The 6:54 a.m. and 7:24 a.m. trips from Hamilton GO Centre will leave three minutes earlier and run express to Clarkson and onto Union Station, arriving at 8:02 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.

Commuters who travel west on the same line should note that the 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. trips to Hamilton GO Centre will leave 17 minutes earlier and run express to Clarkson, arriving in Hamilton at 5:26 p.m. and 5:56 p.m. The 5:30 p.m. trip to Niagara Falls will leave 17 minutes earlier at 5:17 p.m. and run express to Clarkson, arriving in Niagara Falls at 7:37 p.m.

Some Lakeshore West trips will also depart from Union Station up to four minutes earlier, so riders are encouraged to check the schedule before travelling. 

If you travel east on Kitchener Line, you should note that the 5:30 a.m. trip from Kitchener GO will depart 16 minutes earlier, at 5:14 a.m., arriving at Union Station at 6:58 a.m.

The blog says that at 6:30 a.m., a new trip will leave Georgetown GO and arrive at Union Station at 7:28 a.m. The 6:45 a.m. and 7:15 a.m. departures from Kitchener GO will leave seven minutes earlier, at 6:38 a.m. and 7:08 a.m., and run express to Bramalea. They’ll arrive at Union Station at 8:13 a.m. and 8:43 a.m.

If you travel west on the Kitchener Line, note that the 4:04 p.m. trip from Union Station will now end at Bramalea GO. The blog says the 4:34 p.m. trip to London will depart 15 minutes earlier at 4:19 p.m., run express to Bramalea and make all stops to London, arriving at 8:19 p.m.

Metrolinx says the 5:04 p.m. trip from Union Station will leave 15 minutes earlier, at 4:49 p.m. and run express to Bramalea, arriving at Kitchener GO at 8:28 p.m. At 5:19 p.m., a new trip will depart Union Station, running express to Bramalea and arriving at Kitchener GO at 6:58 p.m.
