Toronto-Niagara Seasonal GO Train Service Print

2020 Update: Due to COVID-19, GO Train services to Niagara Falls are currently not operating. With demand for weekend travel starting to increase, we are anticipating an announcement in early July, and will update this page accordingly. 

2019: Bike Train service between Toronto and Niagara is provided by GO Transit during the summer months. The 2019 schedule has trains running Victoria Day weekend (May), all weekends and holiday's from June 21 through to September Labour Day Monday, plus Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.

Recent new service announcements have been made: Toronto Niagara trains will now be operational every weekend as of August 31, 2019. We are still awaiting confirmation on bike transportation capacity, but expect each train to carry up to 18 bikes, 2 per coach. Find some info HERE.

niagara_gorge.jpgThe Toronto-Niagara Seasonal GO Train Service provides service between Toronto's Union Station and Niagara Falls Station, with stops at a number of additional stations including St Catharines.

Niagara Falls Station is ideally situated one block from the Niagara River Recreation Trail, a primarily off-road 56km paved path. Cycle north on a beautiful 20km ride to see the Niagara Gorge, abundant wineries and historic Niagara-on-the-Lake and explore Niagara's Greenbelt. Cycle south on the path to see the magnificent Niagara Falls, and beyond to Fort Erie.

St Catharines station is located a short ride from the city's compact downtown. It is also a great starting point to explore Port Dalhousie, the historic Welland Canal, 20 Valley wine routes and mountain biking trails around the Niagara Escarpment and through Greenbelt areas.

There are a number of trails and routes to enjoy where ever you stop. We have listed a number of featured itineraries and additional trip planning resources to help plan your Niagara bound trip.

By taking Toronto-bound trains cyclists can access Toronto's 1000km Bikeway network and explore the city the best way, by bike. See the Cycling in Toronto page for more Toronto information.

Whether you are cycling one way on the Waterfront Trail, enjoying a trip out with the family or a leisurely pedal within the Greenbelt, the Bike Train can get you to where you want to go.
