More GO Train service between Toronto and Kitchener begins in January

Dec 18 2018, 4:52 am

There will soon be extra GO Train service running between Kitchener and Toronto each day in the morning and evening.

Starting on January 7, people travelling by GO Transit between Kitchener and Toronto’s Union Station will benefit from additional GO train service every weekday morning and afternoon, with a new trip option for customers in Kitchener, Guelph and Acton.

“We are now increasing service to Kitchener GO by 25% and there will be more news to come,” said Minister of Transportation, Jeff Yurek Monday afternoon.

“This is an important step as we continue working with CN to deliver more service and offer two-way, all-day GO Train service for people on the Kitchener line as soon as possible.”

The new morning train will leave Kitchener at 5:40 am and stop in Guelph and Acton before arriving at Toronto’s Union Station at 7:43 am.

The existing trip that currently leaves Union Station at 3:35 pm and previously finished in Georgetown will extend to Kitchener GO Station, stopping at Acton and Guelph GO stations before arriving in Kitchener at 5:43 pm.

“Thanks to an enhanced relationship with our rail partner, CN, we are increasing GO train service for people travelling on the Kitchener line without waiting for a costly rail bypass,” said Minister Yurek.

Commuters will also benefit from an additional morning trip option from Georgetown, Brampton and Mount Pleasant GO stations, and a new afternoon trip from Union Station to Bloor, Weston, Etobicoke North and Malton GO stations.
