Great News! Weekday GO Rail Service planned Between Hamilton and the Niagara Region! 

Highlights from the June 28th announcement include the confirmation that a new weekday GO rail service between the future Confederation GO Station in Hamilton and the Niagara Region will be starting in 2021, with service to Niagara Falls by 2023.

Three other stations are proposed along the corridor in addition to the Confederation GO Station - a new station on Casablanca Boulevard in Grimsby as well as upgraded VIA rail stations in St. Catharines and Niagara Falls.

Work will begin in 2017 to plan, design and retrofit the existing VIA stations.  Service is estimated to reach Grimsby in 2021, and construction would be completed by 2023 to enable service to Niagara Falls.

As Jim Bradley, the MPP for St. Catharines said, “This is terrific news for the people of Niagara Region” and we agree!
