The GO won’t be quite as go go this weekend – and for three additional weekends.

Trains on the Lakeshore West GO line will be reduced to hourly service this weekend, Metrolinx says, due to necessary track replacement work at Exhibition GO Station.

GO train close upHourly service will begin late on Friday, April 12 starting with the 9:43 p.m. train departing from Union GO. The first hourly train from Aldershot GO leaves at 9:01 p.m., Metrolinx said.

The reduced service will run through the weekend until the end of Sunday’s schedule.

Slowdowns in and around Exhibition GO Station, in both directions, are expected to cause delays of up to 10 minutes.

The service changes and potential delays should be taken into consideration when making travel plans, especially for residents heading to and from the Toronto Raptors game on Saturday evening.

This is the first of four weekends — spread out from April to June — that will see the Lakeshore West line reduce its train service to hourly from half-hourly.
