Less frequent Lakeshore East GO trains,
Oshawa to Pickering, November 27, 28, 29



GO Transit is decreasing the frequency of service along the 09 Lakeshore East line this weekend, as contractors upgrade the tracks at the future South Blair Street underpass in Whitby. When complete, the underpass will eliminate the level crossing and the need for trains to sound their whistles at that location. Building the underpass is part of a larger project to build GO’s East Maintenance and Storage Facility.

To accommodate the work, GO is decreasing service along the line between Oshawa and Pickering GO Stations, Friday, November 27 evening and all day Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29.

Friday evening:

  • westbound trains usually start their trips in Oshawa GO Station at 8:08, 9:08 and 10:08 p.m., start, instead in Pickering GO Station at 8:28, 9:28 and 10:28 p.m. They end their trips in Union Station at 9:11, 10:11 and 11:11 p.m.
  • westbound trains still leave Oshawa at 7:38, 8:38, 9:38, 10:38 and 11:38 p.m., dropping off and picking up passengers at all stops to Union, as usually. They end their trips in Union at 8:41, 9:41, 10:41 and 11:41 p.m. and 12:41 a.m.
  • eastbound trains that leave Union at 7:48, 8:43, 9:43 and 10:43 p.m. end their trips in Pickering. They arrive in Pickering at 8:26, 9:21, 10:21 and 11:21 p.m.
