GO trains are heading back to Niagara Falls just in time for the summer.
Metrolinx has announced that its popular weekend GO train service from Toronto to Niagara Falls will resume on June 26.
Starting this weekend, four trains bound for Niagara will leave Union Station every Saturday, Sunday, and holiday Monday throughout summer.
Four Niagara to Toronto trains are scheduled each day as well for those headed into the city.
“Niagara Parks offers some of the most spectacular natural attractions in the world,” said Niagara Parks CEO David Adames.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership with GO Transit to once again provide an efficient transportation option for Ontarians to visit us this summer.”
