Major Lakeshore West schedule changes are coming for trains beginning on Monday, June 27th as GO Transit gets ready for some platform and track closures at Union Station coming in the near future.

With the changes, all Toronto-bound trains departing from both the Hamilton GO Centre and West Harbour GO Station have revised schedules. Scheduled departures to Hamilton’s two GO stations have also changed. However GO Transit has cancelled one change after calls to lessen the impacts of the change.

Here are the changes which start on Monday, June 27th.
