Some GO Bus routes detouring due to Enbridge gas line construction

Work happening in downtown Toronto will temporarily affect some GO bus schedules starting April 12.

Apr 12, 2023

Some GO Bus routes will be rerouted to avoid Enbridge gas line construction happening near Union Station Bus Terminal this week.

The construction along Lake Shore Boulevard at Yonge Street will affect GO Bus Routes 16, 61, 65 and 71.

GO Buses Routes 61, 65 and 71 will be diverted to pick up and drop off at Hwy 407 Bus Terminal from April 12-14 and again from April 17-21.

Customers transferring to the TTC at Hwy 407 Bus Terminal will not be charged double when they tap onto the TTC.

GO Bus Route 16 will divert customers to Aldershot GO on the Lakeshore West line for the duration of work (April 12-21).

While the gas line construction will continue over the weekend (April 15-16), Route 61, 65 and 71 buses will not be rerouted on Saturday and Sunday and will proceed to Union Station Bus Terminal as normal.

Customers are being advised to prepare for significant travel delays, especially over the weekend (April 15-16) due to construction, traffic volume and events in and around the city.

GO Train service is running normally and is not affected by this construction.

Extra staff will be on hand to help direct customers to and from GO and the TTC.
