GO increases service on Lakeshore line

Starting in June, GO Transit will be increasing train service along its Lakeshore lines to every half hour from once an hour, during off-peak times.

Commuter trains currently run hourly between Aldershot and Oshawa, but starting on June 29, the trains will run every 30 minutes, seven days a week.

GO says new schedules will be posted on its website in mid-May.

GO carries about 200,000 passengers each weekday and has the fifth highest commuter train ridership in North America.
