Lakeshore East GO line

Today, GO Transit’s Lakeshore East line provides two-way, all-day service seven days a week between Toronto and Oshawa.

Through its Regional Express Rail project – better known as GO expansion – Metrolinx is already starting to transform the existing GO rail system from a commuter service to a whole new rapid transit experience for your community. In the future, frequent two-way, all-day train service seven days a week, will give you more options to get you where you need to go.

Lakeshore East now

  • 15- to 20-minute, two-way service between Oshawa and Union Station during weekday rush hour periods
  • 30-minute two-way service during the midday, evening and weekends

Lakeshore East with GO RER

Average times between trains are shown. Actual times may be shorter or longer depending on location and departure time.

*Some weekday rush-hour trains will run express from Pickering to Union Station in the morning and from Union Station to Pickering in the afternoon/evening.

Everyone benefits

There will be more trips at every stop along the line, bringing more transit choices to Oshawa, Whitby, Ajax, Pickering, Scarborough, central Toronto and neighbouring communities. Everyone will benefit from more:

Convenience

  • With more frequent service between Oshawa and Toronto and all stops along the way, you’ll have more ways to connect to the things that matter

Speed

  • With new electric trains that accelerate faster, your journey times will be cut by up to 20%, so you’ll spend less time getting there and more time being there

Relief

  • More GO train trips means fewer cars on the road – in the next 10 years, weekly trips across the entire GO rail network will grow from about 1,500 to nearly 6,000, making it easier to choose transit first

Opportunity

  • Live, work and play where you want, when you want – frequent all-day service that connects with local transit like DRT and the TTC will strengthen ties between every community along the line
