2022 - 09-22 - Buses replace Lakeshore East trains.jpg

Starting the evening of Friday, September 23 and continuing all day Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25, GO Transit is replacing trains with buses along the 09 Lakeshore East line during construction and maintenance on the line.

GO buses replace all trains and start their trips at the same times as the trains usually do. Buses operate to and from Union Station Bus Terminal and drop off or pick up passengers in all stations between Pickering and Oshawa GO stations. However, buses don’t serve passengers at GO stations where TTC service is available: Rouge Hill, Guildwood, Eglinton, Scarborough and Danforth GO stations.

Remember that buses don’t have the same capacity as trains. You may wish to board buses along other routes to travel to and from GO stations in Durham Region:

  • 52A Oshawa / Vaughan - Board TTC Line 1 Yonge - University trains to travel between Union and Highway 407 stations.
  • 92 Oshawa / Yorkdale - Board Line 1 trains to travel between Union and Yorkdale or York Mills stations.
  • 96B Oshawa / Finch express - Board Line 1 trains to travel between Union and Sheppard - Yonge or Finch stations.

Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Lakeshore East line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”). This weekend, GO is replacing trains so that crews can continue working on the GO Expansion Program. Also, near Exhibition Station, crews are working on the project to build the Ontario Line subway.
