GO decreasing Lakeshore West service,
evenings, starting October 13



GO Transit is replacing rail ties “that are nearing the end of their life span” on the 01 Lakeshore West line so that, it says, “it can continue to provide reliable service to customers” until the end of October. The ties keep tracks stable and hold the rails in place to make sure they properly align with the wheels of the train.

During the work, GO is reducing the frequency of service along the line between Aldershot and Oakville GO Stations from every 30 minutes to hourly each evening after from 8 p.m. It’s operating hourly trains every evening from Tuesday, October 13 until Thursday, October 22 and from Tuesday, October 27 until Saturday, October 31.

Mondays to Fridays, the eastbound train that usually leaves Aldershot GO Station at 9:31 p.m. does not operate between Aldershot and Oakville. Instead, the train starts its trip in Oakville at 9:56 p.m. and drops off or picks up passengers at all stations east of Oakville at the usual time. Westbound trains that arrive in Oakville at 8:54, 9:54, 10:54 and 11:54 p.m. do not not continue further westward along the line to Aldershot.

Saturdays and Sundays, the eastbound trains that usually leave Aldershot at 9:31 and 10:31 p.m. do not operate between Aldershot and Oakville. Instead, the trains start their trips in Oakville at 9:56 and 10:56 p.m. and drop off or pick up passengers at all stations east of Oakville at the usual time. Westbound trains that arrive in Oakville at 8:54, 9:54, 10:54 and 11:54 p.m. do not continue further westward along the line to Aldershot.

GO buses operating along the 12 Niagara Falls / Burlington, 15 McMaster and 18 Lakeshore West routes that usually connect with the trains at Burlington or Aldershot GO Stations, continue to operate with their regular schedules. Some passengers should expect to wait as long as 30 minutes longer than usually for connecting trains to arrive in the stations.

From Friday, October 23 until Monday, October 26, trains operate along the line with regular schedules.


GO says it “remains committed to providing extra trains throughout the Blue Jays playoff schedule”.


GO is further decreasing service to hourly along the entire line evenings after 8 p.m. from Sunday, November 1 until Friday, November 6, from Tuesday, November 10 until Friday, December 4 and from Tuesday, December 8 until Tuesday, December 15.
