GO adjusting schedules for Kitchener-line trains to accommodate Highways 401 / 409 tunnel-construction project, starting May 10

Metrolinx continues updating GO Transit’s Kitchener rail corridor, as part of the GO Expansion program. Among other projects, they’re building 180-metre twin tunnels less than three metres under Highways 401 and 409 — without disrupting the 21 live traffic lanes directly above.

To accommodate work on the tunnel project, starting Monday, May 10, GO is adjusting the schedules for trains along the 31 Kitchener line.

Eastbound trains
  • The first two morning trains leaving from Georgetown GO Station at 5:30 and 7 a.m. Mondays-to-Fridays leave, instead, two minutes earlier than usually. They leave Weston and Bloor GO stations at regular times.
  • The trains leaving Bramalea GO Station at 8:22 a.m. leaves at regularly scheduled times between between Bramalea and Etobicoke North GO stations, but leaves Weston and Bloor two minutes later than usually.
  • The train leaving Mount Pleasant GO Station at 3:42 p.m. leaves at its regular time.
  • All other Kitchener-line eastbound trains leave two to four minutes later than usually.
Westbound trains
  • The first two morning trips leave stations at regularly scheduled times.
  • The train usually leaving Union Station at 5:34 p.m. to Kitchener leaves, instead 15 minutes later than usually from Union Station and Bloor and Weston GO stations and 17 minutes later than usually beyond Etobicoke North GO Station onwards.
  • All other trains arrive two minutes later than usually beyond Etobicoke North.

GO trains along the Kitchener line continue to operate with revised schedules “until early June”, meaning as late as until June 12.

Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Kitchener line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).
