GO Transit Schedule – Go Train to Niagara Falls


GO Train to Niagara Falls

Looking to take the GO train to Niagara Falls this Summer?

GO Transit has published its schedule for its Toronto-Niagara Falls train and shuttle service for 2016, and with the Summer Holiday’s in full swing and the Civic Holiday weekend fast approaching, why not relax and let the GO train into Niagara Falls be an option?

Seasonal GO Train service to Niagara started operating from the Victoria Day weekend, May 20-23, on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from June 24 until September 5, and Thanksgiving weekend, October 7-10.

UPDATE:

*In the most recent news, Ontario is planning to bring new weekday GO train service between the future Confederation GO Station in Hamilton (construction to begin in 2017, and estimated to be finalized in 2019), and into the Niagara Region starting in 2021, with service to Niagara Falls by 2023! 

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.

The planning stages will begin in 2017. Service is estimated to reach Grimsby in 2021, and construction would be completed by 2023 to enable service to Niagara Falls.*

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 420The 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 “Purple Line” WEGO bus to Clifton Hill. Choosing the WEGO bus will drop you off at the bottom of Clifton Hill and the Niagara Parkway.

  1. I want to go from Montreal to Niagara falls and then on to New York.Fly 11 Oct Montreal to Toronto then transport to Niagara.Two nights Niagara and return transport to airport 13 Oct for flight to New York.Do you provide this service Toronto and return on dates mentioned.

  2. Why is there no proposed service to Niagara between 0940 and 1630 from union?

    I think the 0940 will be most popular but if you envisage
    only a few riders between 0940-1630 why not add one or two bus services in betwee. We would like to make the trip on weekends. I could use my monthly pass from zone 02 to 52 (and take the family) but reaching 02 by 0940hrs is impossible, since there is just one bus from 52 on weekend and holiday.

    Please consider us country commuters. Thanks

  3. Hi, We would like to travel from Union station to Niagrafall by Go train on this Friday April 2, 2010. Is there any train service available on this week. We will travel by family pass.

    Arrival Niagrafall: April 2, 2010
    Departure Niagrafall: April 3,2010.

    Please confirm, can we use the same pass for next day departure from Niagrafall,

    Thanks

  4. LISTEN!!!! GET your times straight!!!!! If you want to attract business, make sure that you are providing the proper times!!!! You look like amateurs!!!! Fix it!!!!

  5. Looking for the schedule to Niagara for departure and arrival times, it says to go to table 2 or 7. Click on the link it sends to a notice about a new homepage which does route you anywhere. Clicking further takes you to home page but how do you then get to Niagara. Why not just put Niagara on the Hamilton schedule instead of running us through these hoops.
    Thanks
