As the province opens up and Ontarians are looking to get out more, GO is bringing back and expanding train service this summer.
Starting August 7, rail service will be significantly ramped up along the Lakeshore line, with more frequent peak and midday trains running every 15 minutes. That’s also the day that the new West Harbour GO station in Hamilton will open, allowing travellers to ride directly from Union Station to Hamilton.
The Kitchener GO line will have two additional westbound trips between Mount Pleasant GO and Union, departing Union at 7:34 pm and 8:34 pm. There will also be an added eastbound trip to Union at 8:40 pm.
For anyone travelling between Kitchener GO and Union, there will be one additional eastbound trip at 8:39 pm and an extra westbound trip at 9:34 pm.
The Barrie line will be ramping up service as well, with hourly weekend service starting August 14.
