Metrolinx has announced that seasonal weekend and holiday GO Train service between Toronto’s Union Station and Niagara Falls will begin on May 21! Combined with a weekend pass, which provides for unlimited use across the entire network, guests can travel to Niagara Falls from Toronto, and all stops in between and beyond for $10 for one-day unlimited use, or $15 for two-day use. Add that children 12 and under ride free, this makes a Go Train trip to stay at a Niagara Falls Hotel and visit exciting Niagara Falls attractions a convenient and economical option.
A popular method of travel, the seasonal schedule will offer three trips on Saturdays, Sundays, and Holiday Mondays from Victoria Day Holiday Weekend through Thanksgiving in October. Unlimited travel Weekend pass tickets are valid for the same days, and must be purchased online, and activated via smartphone 5 minutes before traveling.
While schedules are subject to change, the proposed times are below. Check the schedule before traveling for any changes to service. The three Lakeshore West Line trips to Niagara Falls will depart Union Station at 8:51 a.m., 12:51 p.m. and 4:51 p.m while trips to Toronto will depart at 11:15 a.m., 3:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. If your excursion keeps you later than the train schedule, GO Bus Route 12 can get you home after the last train.
The Niagara seasonal trains will contain 12-cars and will include three bike coaches capable of holding 18 bicycles each, plenty of room if your plans include cycling in Niagara.
As safety remains a priority, masks continue to be mandatory on GO Transit in accordance with provincial guidelines.
