More GO Train and Bus Service for GTHA Commuters

Ontario Government Improving Public Transit

Ministry of Transportation

Ontario is adding more GO Train and bus trips to make it easier for commuters in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to take public transit.

Starting Jan. 4, GO Transit will:

  • Add three new morning trips on the Lakeshore West line
  • Add a new return trip on the Kitchener line to and from Mount Pleasant and extend two existing trips west to serve Georgetown GO Station
  • Convert the morning express trip from Unionville on the Stouffville line to a regular trip with all stops to Union Station, increasing service at Milliken, Agincourt and Kennedy GO Stations
  • Add a new morning trip from Whitby GO Station, which will stop at Ajax and Pickering before running express to Union.

Many new bus trips will be in service including on the Milton, Kitchener and Stouffville routes. Commuters can also check online GO Transit schedules for more information.  

Improving public transit is part of the Ontario government's economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
