Niagara GO ready to take the next step

Regular weekday train service between Niagara Falls and Toronto has been operating for almost six months and the service is prepared for continued growth. 

Since the introduction of the Niagara Line in January ridership has fallen but Metrolinx and the region think we're likely to see a boost this summer. 

The summer schedule will be announced in the next few weeks and Director of the GO Implementation Office Matt Robinson says the region is ready. 

"There's been a significant amount of infrastructure that's been put in at the local and regional level; whether it's Casablanca in Grimsby, the St. Paul street west Humpback bridge replacement in St. Catharines. And St. Catharines council just approved the MOU to create primary station access. "

Work has been done across the region in preparation of expanding service via GO, as well as continuing to build the regional transit system. 

Robinson hopes that as local transit continues to grow and connects residents to GO service they will be more compelled to leave their car at home and jump on the train.
