The popular weekend service now serves Niagara region all year round!
If there’s something you love about Ontario, it can probably be found in Niagara. It’s the site of a titanic natural wonder of the world. It’s premier wine country, home to the famous vintages Canadians love. It’s dotted with B&Bs, picture-perfect hotels, and plenty to explore. Good things are growing in Niagara, and more people are moving there.
And we have been bringing some very exciting news to current and new customers in Niagara Region!
Just last year, regular weekday GO Train service for commuters in Niagara Falls and St. Catharines started, and we also extended weekend service between Toronto and Niagara to run all year round.
We were able to deliver these service improvements now thanks to an even stronger working relationship we have built with CN Railways as well as a number of rail infrastructure investments we have made over the years.
These new services are just the beginning. Expect more great news from us in the coming years!

Here is some of what’s happening across Niagara Region:
Metrolinx is working with the corridor owners on the infrastructure needed to bring more service to Hamilton and Niagara. This includes new track and signaling infrastructure, fibre optic and utility relocation, replacement and upgrades to numerous bridges and crossings.
Metrolinx is also working on service agreements that will account for GO expansion while keeping the short and long-term plans of the corridor owners in mind.
We are committed to incremental increases in service every year while we work towards two-way, all-day GO service between Union Station and Niagara.
The Niagara GO Rail Service Expansion Initial Business Case is now available. This document provides a summary of the strategic, financial, and economic performance for extending two-way all-day GO rail service on the Lakeshore West line to Niagara Region and evaluates three infrastructure options to get there.
