Updated Schedule Starts: Dec 2nd 2024
In an effort to entice more tourists to one of the busiest tourist destinations in the province, the Ontario government is extending weekend GO Train service between Toronto and Niagara Falls to run throughout the year.
Trains now operate three round trips each day throughout the week including Saturday, Sunday, and holiday Mondays.
Niagara Falls GO train weekly and weekend service is currently running year round. Ticket packages also include WEGO, a local bus service to help your move around Niagara Falls.
Taking the GO train to Niagara Falls from the GTA and abroad is a no-brainer. Save yourself the hassle and avoid driving this season and take the train or bus instead. We welcome Go Transit commuters to visit our family friendly destination of Clifton Hill: Falls, Fun, Fantastic!
Round Trip Weekly Train Service!
GO train service to Niagara Falls has continued this season, so people all over the GTA and beyond have a convenient and affordable option for traveling within Ontario to some great destinations. Tickets options include both GO train fare and the convenient WEGO hop-on, hop-off bus, which reaches the Table Rock Centre as well as accommodations and other Niagara attractions. Many of Niagara’s top attractions are now open, so if you are itching to get out of the city, this is a great time to travel.

Expanded Payment Options
The Ontario government recently expanded payment options for transit riders to make taking transit easier. Starting today, riders can tap their debit card on a PRESTO device, including debit cards on a smartphone or smartwatch, to pay fares on several transit systems. This payment option is also available on paratransit services in some areas. This move comes after PRESTO reported a million card taps on its devices since introducing credit card payments in August 2022.

Taking the GO Train to Niagara Falls 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:
WEGO BUS SERVICE
Your round-trip ticket includes the GO Train to Niagara Falls as well as two-day access to WEGO, the hop-on, hop-off bus service that travels throughout the city of Niagara Falls and Niagara Parks. Just order online, present your Go ticket (printed or on your mobile device) and you’ll have access to WeGo.
“The inclusion of WEGO bus service in this ticket package connects our guests to our iconic Table Rock Centre, providing access to Niagara Parks sites and attractions as soon as they arrive in Niagara Falls, making for a smooth and enjoyable visitor experience.” said Niagara Parks CEO David Adames
WEGO features bus lines that all meet in Niagara Parks at Table Rock next to the Horseshoe Falls. This is the main transfer hub serving the city tourist areas.
While you’re visiting the destination, use your mobile device to locate the closest WEGO bus and get estimated bus arrival times.
The WEGO bus service will take you to Clifton Hill’s World Famous Street of Fun with stops in other key areas throughout the city. Clifton Hill offers the best in family-fun attractions and features Canada’s Largest Mini Golf: Dinosaur Adventure Golf!
There are taxi stands located at the Niagara Falls GO Train stop for your convenience. There is no aggravation of hailing a cab with this convenient option.
If you came to Niagara Falls for the scenery, then 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 the Niagara GO Train, and bike route maps are made available at the GO Train Niagara Falls station.
Since the Niagara Falls GO Trains are equipped to hold between 36-54 bikes, you can bring a set of wheels with you and enjoy some of top bike trails when you arrive! This is a great opportunity to try the Niagara Scenic Parkway bike path and cruise your way through wine country.
Safety Never Stops
And no story of GO Transit would be complete without a pause to write about safety. As more customers return to transit, the transit agency wants to reassure riders their health and safety remains a top priority. Since the pandemic began, Metrolinx has implemented more than 40 permanent safety actions to keep transit safe. That includes mandatory masks, clear plastic barriers between seats on trains and buses, and hand sanitizer dispensers on vehicles and in stations.
