All-day GO Train Service Coming to Stouffville GO Line

Ontario Adding More GO Train Trips to Help Commuters and Manage Congestion

Starting Monday, June 26, Ontario is adding new midday and evening GO train service during weekdays on the Stouffville GO line so people around the region can get where they need to be. 

New train trips will run every hour during the midday and evening from Monday to Friday, between Unionville GO Station and Union Station. In addition, there will be one new morning and one new late evening weekday train trip between Lincolnville GO Station and Union Station, and two existing train trips will be extended from Unionville GO Station to Lincolnville GO Station. In total, Metrolinx is adding 17 trips per weekday, doubling the total number of weekly train trips from 85 to170 along the Stouffville GO corridor. 

 Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province's history. To learn more about what's happening in your community, go to Ontario.ca/Build ON. 

Increasing public transit to improve people’s commute is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
