Go passengers looking to hop on the Lakeshore West line between Oakville and West Harbour in Hamilton this weekend will have to swap the rails for the road.

Starting late Friday (June 9) at 9 p.m. until the end of service on Sunday (June 11), a temporary service change will see Go shuttle buses replace the train service between Oakville and West Harbour in preparation for upcoming work that will improve service.

To help get ready for the construction of the Burloak Dr. grade separation, infrastructure in the corridor must be moved, and this can only be done when trains are not running.

Train and bus connections for routes 12, 15, 18 and 21 will be impacted and Niagara Falls train service will end at Aldershot GO in Burlington.

GO train service will continue as normal between Oakville GO and Union Station.

Regular service will resume next Monday (June 12).

Riders using  PRESTO while traveling with GO June 9 – June 11, should top off their balance here before heading out. During your trip, make sure to tap on and off for each portion of your GO commute including when switching between vehicles.

Riders are also encouraged to use gotransit.com or triplinx.ca to plan their trips as schedules and connection times have changed for this weekend. Customers can also check the GO Transit Service Updates page for real-time details.
