Discover a different side of GO this May long weekend!

We live for the weekend, and planning them is just half the fun. Exploring the big city, or cycling through wine country – it’s good to have weekend options, and we give them to you.

Toronto to Niagara. Niagara to Toronto. Either way, we’ll take you there. Now, let’s plan your May long weekend getaway.

Niagara and Niagara-on-the-Lake

Go beyond the city limits. With seasonal service to Niagara region, a weekend getaway to wine country or a tour of one of the world’s natural wonders is a quick train ride away. Forget the worries of weekend traffic, and enjoy a relaxing ride to Niagara Falls. Bring your bike and cruise along the Niagara River Recreation Trail to take in the picturesque Falls or Niagara Gorge. Or take a GO Bus shuttle from St. Catharines and start your winery adventure in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake.


“So where are you headed? A wine tour with girlfriends for the day in Niagara-on-the-Lake? A trip to downtown Toronto for a Blue Jays or Toronto FC game? All are so easily accessible on GO Transit. And best of all…you don’t have to do the driving so you can actually enjoy the scenery!”

“Since I moved to Toronto, I’ve always fancied cycling through the Niagara wine country. I’ve had the opportunity to drive to a few wineries but always daydreamed about how beautiful biking through the area would be. Last weekend, I finally got the opportunity to make this wish a reality with GO Transit’s seasonal service to Niagara.”
