Niagara Falls GO Train Station


Built around 1880 by the Grand Trunk Railway, the iconic Niagara Falls Train Station at 4267 Bridge St. is an international crossing for train travel and houses the Canadian Border Services Agency.

The station was acquired by Niagara Region in 2022 from VIA Rail and is undergoing extensive site redevelopment to preserve its heritage features and modernize its functionality.

The station serves GO Train, GO Bus Route 12, VIA Rail's Maple Leaf line and once redeveloped, will serve all Niagara Region Transit connections and out-of-town coach bus service.


  • More daily GO Train service will be added on May 20, 2023
  • Interior station redevelopment will start in fall 2023
  • Planned station building and site improvements to include:
    • A new multi-modal mobility hub that preserves the historic VIA / GO Rail station, while modernizing the interior structure for multiple transit tenants
    • New bus loops with nine bays split between the east and west side of the building, moving the existing transit plaza on Erie Avenue to be next to the station for safer and more efficient movement of people
    • Modernized washrooms and customer waiting area, including a dedicated space for bus operators
