If there’s something you love about Ontario, you can probably find it 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.

Metrolinx is pleased to be operating the popular weekend GO service to Niagara Falls year-round.

Proposed Beamsville GO Station

Metrolinx has completed an Initial Business Case (IBC), in partnership with Niagara Region, the Town of Lincoln, and a third-party partner, for a proposed GO Station in Beamsville through Metrolinx’s Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) program. The release of the IBC is the first step in the planning process and is good news for those looking to see expanded transit access in Niagara Region.

Niagara Region has been working to transform the train stations at St. Catharines and Niagara Falls to enable enhanced GO service to Niagara. All proposed new station stops are subject to completion of a full business case analysis.
