Over The Falls In A GO Train

The summer of 2009 will be a first for Niagara Falls and and GO Transit. Starting this summer trains will begin operating weekends and holidays between Toronto and the City Of Niagara Falls Canada. 

Trains will make four round trips on each day of the weekends and holidays. A one-way adult fare between Niagara Falls and Toronto's downtown Union Station will cost $15.90. The Niagara train station is located 2.74 kilometres from Clifton Hill.

Don’t forget, bicycles are permitted on any GO Train on a Saturday, Sunday, or statutory holidays.

it's going to be an exciting summer season along the falls, Andy.

I wonder how many Niagara area commuters will be able to go to Toronto on a weekend or holiday - especially during the CNE.

I made my own view about this on my blog.

As for Western New Yorkers (over the border) in Niagara Falls, NY (I have a friend who lives in that area) - they are thinking on how to get by train to Toronto - on a weekend.

If it sounds confusing, that's fine. :)

Thanks for the reminder Andy.

I am sure the Casino's will have regular shuttle buses to.

I think it's a great idea.

Karem... Niagara Falls has tourist buses (People Mover)that operate on River Rd. It is a short walk from the train station. These buses run every 20 minutes. They have all day passes for adults (13 years and over) $7.50, Children 6-12 years $4.50. Children 5 and under ride for Free.

The most interesting thing about Niagara Falls Transit is that the bus garage is located across the road from the Train Station.

Niagara Transit makes Durham Transit seem like a well organized and funded operation. The only redeeming factor is that the train station is right beside the bus terminal (which actually is NOT the main transfer point between all the routes) which is located downtown (again, NOT where most of the commerce/jobs are, its a ghost town) and is near the river (NOT the falls, oi)
