Weekday GO Train service between Niagara Falls and Toronto begins today

Jan 8 2019, 1:06 am

Starting today, Go Transit is officially offering its new daily weekday train service between Niagara Falls and Toronto, further expanding services in Ontario.

The first train of the day will now depart from Niagara Falls at 5:19 am before stopping at St. Catherines Station at 5:41 am as it continues on to West Harbour, making all stops to Clarkson then running express to Union Station with the usual scheduled stops.

The westbound train from Union Station to West Harbour will still depart at 5:15 pm and service will extend to make a stop at St. Catherines Station at 7:22 pm and arrive in Niagara Falls at 7:47 pm.

The cost each way is $19.80 with a Presto card, or $22.30 cash.

When the expanded service was announced in December, Metrolinx said they are very excited to introduce this service and called it essential to this market.

“Regular weekday GO trains have never operated out of Niagara Falls or St. Catharines before,” said Leslie Woo, Chief Planning and Development Officer of Metrolinx. “This is new territory and a sign of more great things to come.”

Daily Hive has reached out to Metrolinx for comment but hadn’t heard back at the time of publication.
