Background
As Niagara grows our transit network is growing too. For 2019, GO service will extend to Hamilton-Stoney Creek. By 2021, GO trains will be rolling all the way to Grimsby. By 2023, GO trains will be regularly servicing St. Catharines and Niagara Falls as well.

On June 28, 2016, the government of Ontario announced the plan to bring new weekday GO Transit train service to Niagara Falls.

Daily GO service to Niagara Falls is part of the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

What We Are Doing
In order to deliver this increase in service, we need to expand the existing CN rail corridor by adding more than 25km of new track, upgrading signals, building a new train layover facility in Niagara Falls, expanding the existing train layover at Lewis Road, and widening/expanding/upgrading bridges.

We will build two new GO stations – Confederation Station in Hamilton-Stoney Creek and Grimsby Station at Casablanca Boulevard.

We will also retrofit two existing VIA stations – one in St. Catharines and one in Niagara Falls to accommodate the new GO service.

Work will begin at Confederation Station by the end of 2017.
