GO Transit: Possible freight strike to impact service

Posted on May 22, 2012

In the event of a Canadian Pacific Rail (CP) strike, rail customers along GO Transit's Milton train line and those using Hamilton GO Centre station will be impacted, as there will be no train service on the Milton line and no trains serving Hamilton GO Centre starting Wednesday.

GO Transit has learned that there is the possibility of a strike by Teamsters Canada Rail Conference representing CP Rail train crews and rail traffic controllers. A strike could occur as early as midnight Tuesday.

If a CP Rail strike occurs, there will be no train service on the Milton line as GO Transit's Milton corridor is owned by CP Rail. Go Transit is encouraging riders using the line to find alternate ways to get to and from work. GO Bus service on the Milton line will not be affected and will continue to operate as normal.

All other GO Transit rail corridors will be unaffected by a CP Rail strike.
