TORONTO — GO Transit is beefing up commuter rail service on its Lakeshore East rail corridor with new train service from Oshawa to Bowmanville in Ontario. The extension will ad more than 10 miles of service and add four new stations in the Durham region of Ontario. There will be two new stations in Oshawa, one in Courtice, and one in Bowmanville, according to the agency. Currently, GO trains only operate as far as Oshawa.

According to a news release, government officials in Ontario are currently working with Canadian Pacific on infrastructure and service planning for the extension, as a portion of the new corridor will use existing freight tracks used by the Class I railroad.

The new service is expected to begin by 2024.
