Lakeshore West GO trains operate hourly,
bypass Mimico station, October 13 and 14



Metrolinx is upgrading railway crossings, tracks and platforms near Mimico GO Station on GO Transit’s 01 Lakeshore West line weekends this fall.

GO is adjusting service along the line, while crews take portions of track out of service and restore six century-old bridges. Weekend trains operate hourly these weekends, bypassing Mimico and Exhibition GO stations.

GO is providing special train service for passengers between Exhibition and Union Station. However, passengers travelling to and from the Mimico area either have to board or exit from trains at Long Branch GO Station or ride the TTC. Commuters can also park their vehicles at Long Branch.

This Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14, all eastbound trains leave Aldershot GO Station at 1 minute past the hour. The trains end their trips in Union Station at five minutes past the [next] hour. The train that leaves Aldershot at 7:01 a.m. is the first eastbound train. Trains that usually leave Aldershot at 31 minutes past the hour are not operating Saturday and Sunday, except for the train that usually leaves Aldershot at 11:31 p.m.

All westbound trains leave Union Station only at 43 minutes past the hour. They end their trips in Aldershot at 12 minutes past the [next] hour. The train that leaves Union at 6:43 a.m. is the first train of the day. Trains that usually leave Union at 13 minutes past the hour are not operating Saturday and Sunday.

No trains operate to and from Mimico GO Station this weekend. Because GO has to detour around the bridges that Metrolinx is rehabilitating, trains cannot travel along their normal route. All six bridges are between Exhibition and Long Branch GO Stations.

Trains travelling between Union Station and Long Branch detour along the 21 Milton line. Expect trains to operate as much as 15 minutes behind schedule due to the longer trip between Union and Long Branch.


GO is operating special “Exhibition only” trains between Union Station and Exhibition GO while Lakeshore West trains detour around the bridge work. (These are likely 09 Lakeshore East trains that GO is extending to Exhibition this weekend.) The trains also leave Union at 43 minutes past the hour and arrive in Exhibition at 50 minutes past.

  • If you’re travelling to Exhibition from the east, transfer to special “Exhibition only” trains at Union Station.
  • If you’re travelling to Exhibition from the west, continue aboard the Lakeshore West train to Union Station, then board the special “Exhibition only” train, which will continue to Exhibition.
  • If you are travelling eastbound from Exhibition, board the train from Exhibition GO. Transfer at Union Station.
  • If you are travelling westbound from Exhibition, board the eastbound train at Exhibition to Union Station. At Union Station, transfer to the Lakeshore West train.

Metrolinx says it can only complete this project when trains aren’t running, so crews are working weekends, which aren’t as busy, to reduce disrupting passengers.


GO previously revised its service to support the project four previous weekends:

Metrolinx continues the project and GO revises its train service four more times this fall:

  • Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21;
  • Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28;
  • Saturday, November 24 and Sunday, November 25; and
  • Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2.

This weekend, crews continue working on the Humber River bridge. However, they’ll also replace the bridge carrying the tracks over Colborne Lodge Drive.
