Hamilton GO Expansion

More Choices for a Growing City

Hamilton has fast become a destination where more Canadians choose to live, work and play. This vibrant, growing community is rich with history, culture, sports and a booming restaurant scene. With more businesses and residents calling Hamilton their home every year, Metrolinx is working to expand GO Transit service to fit the needs of a burgeoning city.

We’ve doubled rush hour GO Train service for West Harbour Station, and GO Bus 12 began serving Confederation Station in November 2019. That means less rush to the rush hour.

As Hamilton expands and develops, Metrolinx will be right here with them, continuing to deliver more choices for GO Transit service across the board. It’s happening.

All alignments, stations, stops, locations, names and quantity of stations/stops are conceptual and subject to change.

Benefits to the Community:

Bringing more service to Hamilton is one of Metrolinx’s top priorities. Through the GO Expansion program the Hamilton residents will receive more service than there is today with a blend of train and bus services to Hamilton Centre GO, West Harbour and the future Confederation GO Station.

Metrolinx is also building the new Confederation GO Station in Stoney Creek, which will enable two-way train service from Toronto through Hamilton and on to Niagara Falls.

You can read more about the progress at Confederation GO, the expansion of the Centennial Parkway bridge adjacent to the future station site, and about the extensive track work to allow more GO Trains into Hamilton in the future on the Metrolinx News blog.
