  • Again on Friday, April 25 (from 7:00 p.m. onwards) to end of day Sunday, April 27

What you need to know

  • GO Trains will only travel to/from Oshawa GO Station once an hour.
  • GO shuttle buses will operate between Oshawa GO (Platform 5) and Whitby GO (bus loop, stop is on the north side of the station).
  • GO Bus Route 90 & 91 will hold to connect to the GO shuttle buses.
  • Regular 30 minute train service will continue between Whitby GO and Union.
  • If you normally drive to Oshawa GO, consider driving to Whitby GO instead.
