GO Train delays expected after person reportedly struck by train
GO Transit is responding to a potential fatality this afternoon.
Lakeshore West passengers are being notified of a report that a person was struck by a train west of Exhibition GO Station in Toronto.
The area is now in the hands of emergency personnel.
GO Transit anticipates significant delays and possible cancellations, with trains unable to move through the area until a full investigation is completed.
“Trains are currently running between Aldershot GO and Mimico GO. We will be providing a direct GO bus shuttle between Port Credit GO and Union Station,” GO Transit reports.
“The Union Station 16:43 - Aldershot GO 17:48 train will need to hold until further notice.”
It’s expected to take about two hours before regular service resumes.
