GO has reintroduced weekend train service from Union Station in Toronto to Niagara Falls VIA Station. The new and improved train schedule will include three return weekend GO train trips on Saturdays, Sundays, and holiday Mondays. That means that there will be lots of seats and a train departing at a time that is right for you.

On weekends and holidays from the Victoria Day long weekend until Thanksgiving weekend, 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.

Staying out late? GO Bus Route 12 can get you home after the last train. In the event of Lakeshore West GO train cancellation between Niagara and Toronto, your GO/WEGO Combo Ticket is valid for GO Bus service as well, to and from Niagara. GO bus Route 12 serves Niagara Falls and St. Catharines, and will provide you service to and from the Niagara Region, with connections at Burlington GO for replacement bus or GO train service.

Whether it is your first visit to Niagara Falls or you’ve taken in the sights, sounds, and natural beauty countless times before, there’s always something new to see. Truly, a great time is guaranteed for anyone who visits.

For example, visitors can take in a new one-of-a-kind landmark, the Niagara Parks Power Station. This historic structure – a massive hydroelectric plant that was built in 1905 – has been transformed into an attraction with interactive exhibits and installations that explore the history and science of hydroelectric power. A multimedia experience, “Currents: Niagara’s Power Transformed,” will bring the old station to life at night with state-of-the-art sound and 3D projection. That’s pretty cool for dad, mom, and the kids!

Niagara, the GO Train Has Your Back Too!

Whether you nap, read, or do some homework, taking the GO train to Toronto has countless benefits.

Trips to Toronto will depart at 11:15 a.m., 3:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. The 12-car trains to and from Niagara Falls will include three bike coaches that can each hold 18 bicycles.
