Toronto-based GO Transit will commence summer weekend and holiday rail service to Ontario’s Niagara Region beginning June 27. The service will offer four train trips daily in each direction on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays from June 27 through through Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, October 12.


The two-hour trip will  link Toronto’s Union Station with Port Credit GO Station, Oakville GO Station, Burlington GO Station, St. Catharines VIA Rail Station, and Niagara Falls VIA Rail Station.

An adult single ride fare from Union Station to Niagara Falls will be C$15.90.

"This new GO rail service will bring tourists to Niagara's wineries, restaurants, and attractions such as the incomparable Niagara Falls. Our government is expanding public transit across the province, making investments
that build our economic infrastructure and put people to work," said Ontario Minister of Transportation Jim Bradley in a statement.
