Train on the Lakeshore West Line

Lakeshore West Line GO Expansion

Lakeshore West Line GO Expansion

More trips, more trains, more of what you need

Today, the Lakeshore West line delivers two-way, all-day service seven days a week, from Union Station to Aldershot GO Station, and hourly service to West Harbour GO Station. It delivers rush-hour service from Hamilton to Toronto in the morning and back again in the afternoon. We know this line can do even more. We know it can be faster, with more trips all day long.

Whether you are traveling to work or visiting friends and family – we’re committed to getting you there better, faster, easier. The Lakeshore West GO Expansion will expand your possibilities. With 15-minute service or better throughout the day between Toronto and Burlington, alongside new hourly service to and from Hamilton seven days a week, you’ll have more ways to get where you need to go.
