GO trains return to Niagara this weekend,
May 18, 19, 20, 21



GO Transit is again offering seasonal GO train service between Niagara Falls and Toronto.

This year, the service is available during the upcoming Victoria Day long weekend, Friday, May 18 until Victoria Day, Monday, May 21, then Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from Friday, June 22 until Labour Day, Monday, September 3. The trains likely roll again during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, from Friday, October 5 until Monday, October 8 — although GO hasn’t officially yet confirmed that.

Trains serving the 12 Niagara Falls line operate Friday evenings and several times each Saturday, Sunday and holiday, dropping off and picking up passengers at Union Station, Exhibition, Port Credit, Oakville and Burlington GO stations and St. Catharines and Niagara Falls VIA Rail stations.

GO has not yet finalized its schedule for the summer service, but it has published its schedule for the Victoria Day long weekend, here.

This year, GO is not operating express buses carrying passengers between St. Catharines VIA Rail Station and downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake. It has cancelled service along the 11 Niagara-on-the Lake / St. Catharines route. Instead, it’s encouraging passengers to board WEGO buses in Niagara Falls to travel to and from Niagara-on-the-Lake. (You’ll have to transfer between buses in Queenston.)

The travel time between Union Station and Niagara Falls is about two hours, passing through many cities and towns and across the Welland Canal.

Although GO says it will make “every effort… to get you there on time”, you may experience delays because GO, freight and VIA trains share a single track through this corridor. Since a lift bridge carries the tracks across the canal, ships passing through the canal may also delay the trains.

GO is equipping all trains operating along the line Saturdays, Sundays and holidays with two special bicycle coaches. (The coaches are not available Friday evenings.) The bike coaches can hold 18 bikes on the lower level. All regular coaches can also hold two bikes.


12 Niagara Falls trains

Friday, May 18, the train leaves Union Station at 6:20 p.m. and arrives in the Niagara Falls VIA Rail Station at 8:24 p.m. A return train leaves Niagara Falls at 8:40 p.m. and arrives in Union at 10:44 p.m.

Saturday, May 19, Sunday, May 20 and Victoria Day, Monday, May 21, trains leave Union Station at 9 a.m. and 4:18 and 8:10 p.m. They arrive in Niagara Falls at 11:04 a.m. and 6:22 and 10:14 p.m.

GO buses operating along the 12 Niagara Falls / Burlington route link Burlington GO Station with the Niagara Falls VIA Rail Station seven days a week at all times of the year. The buses also stop to drop off or pick up passengers at “Park ‘n’ Ride” carpool lots in Stoney Creek (east-end Hamilton) and Grimsby, Beamsville (Town of Lincoln) and in Fairview Mall Terminal in St. Catharines.


When you arrive in Niagara Falls, hop on a WEGO bus to get around. WEGO links visitors to popular Niagara Falls tourist attractions. The WEGO bus often connects to the GO Train at the Niagara station and takes you right to the Falls.

WEGO also connects to Niagara Parks Commission bus service between Niagara-on-the-Lake and the village of Queenston at the Floral Clock from Saturday, May 5 until Saturday, October 29. Buy tickets at either end of the shuttle route — at Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake or at the Floral Clock in Queenston. Buses operate every hour between the first and last buses of the day — northbound from the floral clock 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. daily and southbound from Fort George 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. The one-way fare for adults passengers 13 years of age or older — is $7, while the round-trip fare is $6. One-way fare for children — five to 13 years of age — is $5, or $4 for a round trip. Kids younger than five years ride free of fare.

And, you can also ride St. Catharines Transit Commission, Niagara Falls Transit, Niagara-on-the-Lake Transit and Niagara Regional Transit buses to get around the Niagara Region.
