Increased GO Train service coming to commuters in Burlington, Oakville
Published March 24, 2022 at 11:38 am
Metrolinx is making changes to the Lakeshore GO line that will benefit riders in Oakville and Burlington.
Beginning April 2 on the Lakeshore east and west lines, there will be trains at least every 30 minutes, including on evenings and weekends.
This is an increase from the hourly service that has been in place on evenings and weekends.
While train service is increasing on the Lakeshore West Line, there is construction happening Sunday, Apr. 3, and Sunday, Apr. 10, which means GO buses will replace most trains on those two days.
Trains will be replaced by buses so crews can carry out important work for the Hurontario LRT near Port Credit GO – this work can only be done when trains aren’t running.
Other changes being introduced by Metrolinx include:
- More frequent UP Express trips from Union Station to Lester B. Pearson Airport
- Seasonal weekend service to the Toronto Zoo returns on GO Bus Route 96
- GO Train customers on the Richmond Hill and Milton Lines will experience minor schedule adjustments to better reflect travel times
- For GO Bus customers, some bus trips will be replaced with trains and some schedules are being adjusted to connect with the returning train service, so customers accustomed to taking the bus should check schedules before they head out
A reminder that following a legislative change, new GO Buses added to our fleet have seatbelts. Please buckle up when seatbelts are available, it’s the law
Also, masks continue to be mandatory on GO Transit and UP Express vehicles and inside stations. Ensure your mask properly covers your nose and chin.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
