Niagara Region and Niagara's local area municipalities have been actively working to bring daily GO Train Service and expanded, integrated inter-municipal transit service to all of Niagara.
In June 2016, the Province formally announced the extension of GO train service to Niagara with stops in Grimsby by 2021, and St. Catharines and Niagara Falls by 2023.
Daily GO Train Service will provide Niagara with connections to the Greater Toronto area and beyond. It will provide a valuable transportation option for Niagara residents and visitors and allow for enhanced opportunities for work, recreation and travel.
Niagara's inter-municipal transit services are an important element to this expansion of GO Train service. Inter-municipal transit allows residents and visitors to travel through public transportation within Niagara.
In 2017, the Niagara Transit Service Delivery and Governance Strategy was completed by Dillon Consulting and provided the roadmap to expanded inter-municipal transit services throughout the region, as well as recommendations for a future, unified transit system.
Together, these two initiatives will greatly improve and expand transportation options throughout the region. A considerable amount of work now needs to be undertaken to move transit forward in Niagara. These project pages will provide details on the wide range of projects, initiatives and activities that are being undertaken.
