Ontario Boosting GO Bus Services in Burlington

Province Providing More Travel Options for Commuters and Families

Ontario is boosting bus service from Burlington to Niagara to help manage congestion and provide convenient and frequent service for commuters and families.

Effective Sept. 2, Ontario will introduce more GO bus service on some of the most in-demand routes that serve customers in Burlington, St. Catharines, Guelph, Mississauga, Oakville, Hamilton and Richmond Hill:

  • Six new weekday bus trips on Route 12 Burlington-Niagara to increase bus service to every half hour between Burlington and St. Catharines, including an earlier morning trip from Burlington to Niagara College in time for morning classes
  • Nine new midday and evening weekday bus trips and two new weekend bus trips on Route 29 Guelph-Mississauga to provide consistent, hourly all-day service along this corridor
  • 13 new weekday and four new weekend bus trips on Route 40 Hamilton-Richmond Hill to meet popular demand and provide 24-hour service, seven days a week, with a connection to Pearson International Airport and the Airport Corporate Centre
  • Realignment of Route 19 and Route 40 to provide GO bus service to the Dixie Transitway Station

These improvements will help commuters in communities across the region connect to jobs, school and recreational activities with a modern, integrated transit service.

Expanding GO Transit to improve people’s commute is part of our government’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.


“Our government's investment in improved bus services will help Burlington residents connect to school, work and a range of tourist attractions. These service changes will better suit the needs of our students and families, contributing to a modernized transit network and better connected communities so that Burlington commuters can travel conveniently and reliably.”

— Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, MPP for Burlington

 “We are delivering on our commitment to expand GO Transit service with more options for commuters to get where they need to go. These service changes will help manage congestion and provide reliable, predictable journeys across the region.”

— Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation

“Providing more train and bus service on our most in-demand routes is just one more way we are making transit a convenient choice for commuters. These new Barrie GO train trips also bring us one step closer to our goal of transforming the GO rail network to provide faster and more frequent rail service throughout the entire region.”

— John Jensen, President and CEO, Metrolinx


  • The province is investing $21.3 billion to transform the GO network from a commuter transit system to a regional rapid transit system.
  • The GO RER program involves more than 500 separate projects across 40 municipalities.
  • Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province's history. To learn more about what's happening in your community, go to
