There will be two more morning and afternoon GO trains during peak travel times between Kitchener and Toronto starting this September. Both trains will stop in Guelph.

The announcement did not specify what times these 2 additional trains will run at. The next schedule change will be announced in late August to start after Labour Day. Both of these GO trains will be an extension of existing GO trains that currently end in Georgetown.

There will also be all day express GO Bus service between Kitchener and Bramalea Go station to connect to the daytime train service currently in operation. Guelph currently has all day GO Bus service that connects each hour at Mount Pleasant Go Station and the daytime train service.

New Rail Corridor

The province also announced an agreement-in-principle with CN Rail that would have the province build a new freight corridor bypass that would to shift most freight train traffic off of the CN-owned rail line and allow for all day GO train service between Kitchener and Toronto by 2024.

This would also allow the entire Go line to be electrified. Previously it would have only been electrified as far as Bramalea Go Station.
