Metrolinx Announces Service Expansion in Niagara Falls
With the success of 11 years of summer season weekend Go train service between Toronto & Niagara Falls, Metrolinx has announced that weekend Go train service will continue year round, starting Aug. 31. The announcement was part of a larger expansion across the GO train network — there will be 84 more train trips each week on the Lakeshore East, Lakeshore West and Kitchener lines, and 65 extended trips on the Lakeshore West, Kitchener and Stouffville lines.
The move increases rush-hour, mid-day and evening availability in the GTA and Hamilton area. “These changes are another major step in our GO expansion program,” said Metrolinx president and chief executive officer Phil Verster. “The new express option for Kitchener will save customers 20 minutes in their daily commutes, we’re doubling rush-hour service for West Harbour GO, and weekend Niagara service will now run all year.” Verster said offering nearly 150 new and extended weekly GO train trips means “our customers have more options to travel when they want to go.”
