46 Oakville / Highway 407
47 Hamilton / Highway 407
51 Pickering / Highway 407
52 Oshawa / Highway 407
56 Oshawa / Oakville

Starting Tuesday, February 16, GO is combining much of its service along routes 47 and 51. Buses operate along new route 41 about every hour Mondays to Fridays from about 4 a.m. until 11 p.m. Buses continue to operate along route 47 to supplement route 41 service west of Highway 407 terminal, especially during rush hours. GO is cancelling route 51 (for now).

GO also continues to operate buses along route 47 Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

Also starting February 16, GO is introducing new route 56, similarly replacing much of its service along routes 46 and 52. Buses along route 56 drop off or pick up passengers at stops about every hour Mondays to Fridays from about 4 a.m. until 11 p.m. Buses continue to operate along route 46 to supplement route 56 service west of Highway 407 terminal, especially during rush hours.

GO is cancelling Monday-to-Friday service along route 52, but continues to operate buses along the route Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

Buses along both new routes have different schedules than the older routes. Be sure to plan ahead by checking schedules before you leave your point of origin and planning to add extra time for your trip.

Before GO decreased its services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it interlined many of its buses through Highway 407 Station terminal:

  • the 46 Oakville / Highway 407 route with the 54 Markham / Highway 407 route;
  • the 47 Hamilton / Highway 407 route with the 51 Pickering / Highway 407 route; and
  • the 48 Guelph / Highway 407 route with the 52 Oshawa / Highway 407 route.

Transit agencies often interline two or more routes with a common terminal to save resources: human resources (drivers) and physical resources (vehicles). In this case, after arriving in Highway 407 terminal, a westbound route 46 bus would continue westbound along route 54. After completing round trip along route 54, the bus returned to Highway 407 terminal to continue eastward along route 46 to Oakville.


45 Mississauga / Highway 407
46 Oakville / Highway 407

With the various changes to Highway 407 schedules and services, GO is also revising platform locations for buses in various terminals.

Starting Tuesday, February 16, westbound buses along route 46 drop off or pick up passengers at new platforms:

  • Platform 10 in Highway 407 Station terminal;
  • Platform 9 in Bramalea GO Station terminal;
  • Platform 3 in Square One GO Bus Terminal; and
  • Platform 2 in Erin Mills Transitway Station.

That same day, eastbound buses along the 45B branch of route 45 start picking up passengers at platform 9, instead of platform 11, in Richmond Hill Centre Terminal.
