The provincial government is resuming weekend GO train service to Niagara in an effort to attract more tourists.
Weekend service starts up again on Aug. 1 — right as the long weekend starts.
Four trips to and from Niagara Falls and St. Catharines will run each Saturday, Sunday and on holiday Mondays.
The provincial government says the move will provide “more service than ever before” and allow for “convenient day or overnight trips, either in Niagara or Toronto.”
MPP for Niagara West, Sam Oosterhoff, joined Lisa MacLeod, the minister of heritage, sport, tourism and culture industries, in announcing the change today.
“This has been a very challenging time for the tourism sector, but today marks another step in Niagara Region’s recovery,” MacLeod said in a media release. “I am thrilled that weekend GO service is able to resume to Niagara. It will make it easier for people to safely visit one of the most attractive destinations in Ontario.”
The trains will connect people from Niagara to Toronto, Oosterhoff said, and reiterated that people can “safely visit.”
