Taking the GO Train is the most efficient way to travel through the big cities. Avoid traffic, gas fees, and save valuable time!

The GO Train stops at 4267 Bridge Street in Niagara Falls (at River Road), and the GO Bus at 4555 Erie Avenue (at Bridge Street) near downtown, or at its stop at Stanley Avenue & Highway 420. The Bridge Street and Erie Avenue routes are approximately 4 km from the Falls and only 2 blocks from the downtown district. Getting to Clifton Hill is easy from there with these options:

Taxi

There are taxi stands located at the GO Train stop for your convenience. There is no aggravation of hailing a cab with this convenient option.

Walking 

If you came to Niagara Falls for the scenery, than this is your best option. To walk from Bridge Street to Clifton Hill and/or the Falls will take approximately a half hour. Take the Legacy Trail for a safe and quiet path. The trail connects downtown near City Hall to Bender Street by running along the old Canadian Pacific Railway corridor parallel to Ontario Avenue. It is a trail made from asphalt, which makes it easy for cyclists, the mobility impaired, and parents pushing strollers to use.

You can also take the world famous Niagara Parkway (River Road) with its unmistakable stone walls protecting pedestrians from the twelve foot drop into the scenic Niagara river gorge area.

Bicycles are welcome on GO Transit, and bike route maps are made available at the GO Train station.

WEGO

Take the “Green Line” WEGO bus to Clifton Hill. Choosing the WEGO bus will drop you off at the bottom of Clifton Hill and the Niagara Parkway.

GO Train to Niagara Falls

*Please note that there is no WEGO service from the GO bus stop at Stanley Avenue & Highway 420.

Ontario is bringing a new weekday GO train service between the future Confederation GO Station in Hamilton (Metrolinx estimates it to be finalized in 2019), and into the Niagara Region starting in 2021, with service to Niagara Falls by 2023! It will enable two-way weekday train service from Toronto through Hamilton, Stoney Creek and Niagara.

In the plans, there are three other stations that are proposed to be built in the Niagara Region that include a new station on Casablanca Boulevard in Grimsby, as well as upgraded VIA rail stations in St. Catharines and Niagara Falls.

The Niagara Falls GO train extension will operate on approximately 60 km of track between the upcoming Confederation GO Station in Hamilton and Niagara Falls.

Service is estimated to reach Grimsby in 2021, and construction would be completed by 2023 to enable service to Niagara Falls.

The Niagara Region is moving ahead with the extension of Thorold Stone Road in Niagara Falls with the intent to be finalized on the arrival of the GO train service in 2023. The plan is to start out in an easterly direction until it reaches the CN rail tracks. It then will bend southward parallel to the railroad right-of-way to a new intersection at Victoria Avenue and Bridge Street which will serve as a gateway for the existing train station.
