There’s some great news for riders on the Lakeshore West Line, after Metrolinx announced the largest GO Train service increase in over a decade. 

Customers getting on between Oakville GO and Union Station are set to enjoy improvements along the line. 

Here’s what you need to know:  

  • Beginning April 28, customers can enjoy increased service on weekend, with trains coming every 15 minutes in the afternoons and evenings between Oakville GO and Union Station. 
  • An improvement compared to the previous 30 minutes service 

Be sure to check the latest schedules on the GO Transit website – as departure times along the Lakeshore West Line may have changed.  

These changes are all part of our ongoing work to bring more options and better flexibility for customers traveling across the region.

Saving money with transit  

Choice and affordability are at the heart of our service, and getting across the region is now simpler and more cost-effective than ever. 

With only a single tap, Ontario’s One Fare Program means customers only pay once when travelling between TTC and GO Transit, Brampton Transit, Durham Region Transit, MiWay and York Region Transit. 

Seniors and students can benefit from significant discounts when paying with a PRESTO card and don’t forget, kids 12 and under ride for free on GO Transit!  

With transit more affordable and flexible than ever, you can spend less time in gridlock, and more time with friends and family, going to the game, seeing a show, and so much more.
