The project includes the creation of four new stations: two in Oshawa, one in Courtice, and one in Bowmanville. When service begins, four rush-hour trains will leave from Bowmanville in the morning, and return in the afternoon.

When service opens in 2024, the line will provide four morning trips along the line to Union Station in downtown Toronto, and four afternoon trips making all station stops to the new Bowmanville station.
