IMPORTANT GO Train service update for this afternoon due to high heat – Wed. June 19, 2024

During prolonged periods of high heat, rail tracks have the potential to soften and expand that require us to run trains at slower speeds. To ensure the safety of our customers and crew, slow orders are issued along the network which also reduce the risk of track damage.

As a result of ongoing heat patrols and slow orders, the following trips have been impacted: 

Stouffville Line: 

  • Union Station 14:12 – Mount Joy GO 15:07 – Customers can take a GO bus from Union Station Bus Terminal running express to Unionville GO, and making all stops north to Mount Joy GO.
  • Mount Joy GO 15:34 – Union Station 16:29 – Customers can take a GO bus from Mount Joy GO, making all stops south to Unionville GO station, and then running express to Union Station Bus Terminal.
  • Customers travelling to and from Kennedy, Agincourt and Unionville GO are encouraged to take TTC.
  • The Union Station 15:12 – Mount Joy 16:24 train has been adjusted to depart at 15:28.

Lakeshore East: 

  • Union Station 15:20 – Durham College Oshawa GO 16:22 trip has been cancelled. Please consider taking the 14:50 or the 15:50 train departing at Union Station. 
  • Durham College Oshawa GO 16:40 – Union Station 17:42 trip has been cancelled. Please consider taking the 16:10 or the 17:10 train departing at Durham College Oshawa GO.

Lakeshore West:

  • All outbound express Lakeshore West trips from Union Station will now arrive at stations approximately 5-10 minutes later as we operate at slower speeds due to extreme heat.
  • Outbound Lakeshore West trips between 15:30 and 18:00 today have been adjusted to arrive 5-10 minutes later than originally scheduled at all station stops. We expect all trips to begin as scheduled.

Kitchener Line:

  • All outbound Kitchener Line trips between 12:30 and 20:00 today have been adjusted to arrive 10 minutes later than originally scheduled at all station stops. We expect all trips to begin as scheduled.

We know that heat-related delays can be frustrating for customers, however we must take proactive measures to ensure the GO Transit network operates safely in all kinds of weather conditions.
