GO Transit announces major service expansions

GOTrain_new Effective June 29, GO Train service will expand substantially along the Oshawa to Toronto corridor, with other areas also expanding service, including bus lines.  Today's announcement marks the biggest service expansion in the service's history. Until now, off-peak service between Oshawa and Union Station was offered on an hourly basis.  Starting tomorrow, trains will be available every 30 minutes, effectively doing away with the need to look at a schedule.  This will make for more convenient options for off-peak commuters, as well as those wishing to use the train instead of driving downtown for leisure visits.  Trains start before 6 am and run until well after midnight. Additionally, GO Bus service in Durham Region will be expanded, with some changes on the Durham Region Transit routes to complement the GO service changes. In the near term, GO Train service will be expanded east to Bowmanville, providing more commuter options to a growing east Durham population. Check out for details and updated schedules.
