Expanding GO Rail Service in Durham Region

What We’re Doing

Metrolinx is working with Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) to advance infrastructure and service planning that will bring new GO rail service to a 20-kilometre extension of the Lakeshore East GO line by 2024.

The plan is to have four GO trains each morning and four each afternoon in and out of Bowmanville when the service starts in eight years.

Four new stations are being built to support the service: Thornton Road in Oshawa, Ritson Road in Oshawa, Courtice Road in Courtice and Martin Road in Bowmanville.

Why We’re Doing It

Expanded rail service will provide Durham Region with more direct connections to the larger GO Transit network, helping to reduce congestion in the GTHA while connecting people to education and job opportunities.

Expanding GO Train service in Durham Region builds upon planning work and service and infrastructure improvements that are already underway through our Regional Transportation Plan.

More GO service to Bowmanville is part of the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

Timeline

This new GO rail service is expected to begin by 2023-24.
