Richmond Hill GO line

GO Transit’s Richmond Hill line provides weekday rush-hour train service between Richmond Hill and Toronto and all stops along the way. Trains run south in the morning and north in the afternoon.

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. With more frequent rush-hour service from Monday to Friday, you’ll have more options to get you where you need to go.

Weekday rush hour

  • 15-minute service from Richmond Hill* to Union Station in the morning
  • 15-minute service from Union Station to Richmond Hill* in the afternoon/evening

Actual times between trains may be shorter.

*A new station at Bloomington Road is currently under construction.

Everyone benefits

There will be more trips at every stop along the line, bringing more transit choices to Aurora, Richmond Hill, Thornhill, North York, downtown Toronto and neighbouring communities. Everyone will benefit from:

More options

  • The number of trips on the Richmond Hill line is projected to increase by up to 35% over the next 5 years, giving you more flexibility in your rush hour commutes
  • Service to Gormley GO Station at Stouffville Road and Leslie Street started on December 5, 2016, providing increased train service to the York Region.
  • Construction of the new station at Bloomington Road started in early 2017. Once complete this station will have 1000 parking spaces and a future MTO car pool lot.

More time

  • With more frequent rush-hour service – every 15 minutes or better between Richmond Hill and Toronto and all stops along the way – you’ll have more ways to connect to the things that matter

More 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
