Lakeshore GO train service in Mississauga and beyond will be slightly impacted the weekend of Oct. 16-17 as maintenance crews upgrade the tracks. 

But Toronto Blue Jays fans likely won’t have any trips to and from the ball game to worry about as the American League baseball club is a longshot to make the playoffs.  

However, the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs have a home date against the Ottawa Senators scheduled the night of Saturday, Oct. 16 at Scotiabank Arena. Mississauga fans planning to use GO train service to get to and from that game should keep the modified train service in mind. 

Officials with Metrolinx, the Ontario crown agency responsible for public transit in the Golden Horseshoe, say Lakeshore West GO train times will be slightly altered beginning the morning of Saturday, Oct. 16 and continuing until the end of the following day.  

Westbound train service will have modified departure times with some trips departing Burlington five minutes later and others two minutes earlier. This will affect train arrival and departure times at Mississauga stops. 

Passengers are urged to keep up to date on train times. 

Regular service will resume on the Monday. 

Crews will be working on the tracks between the Gardiner Expressway and Dufferin Street in Toronto, which will impact GO train times into and out of Mississauga and as far west as Burlington. 

Metrolinx officials say the work will improve train speeds, service life and reliability, “…allowing GO Transit to provide better service in the future.”
