GO Transit will be once again offering weekend rail service between Toronto and Niagara Falls beginning on Victoria Day weekend. Weekend train trips will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and are great for those in the 'Oakville Real Estate' area looking to get away for the day.

"We are pleased to be able to restore our weekend rail service between Toronto and Niagara Falls," said GO Transit President, Gary McNeil. "Passengers rely on our rail service to provide a fast, convenient and cost effective travel option for their summer weekend getaways. We know that we will also attract new passengers who want to explore the beautiful Niagara Region."

The service will operate as a seasonal service for the Victoria Day weekend - May 20th to 23rd. Regular summer weekend service will run each weekend from June 24th to September 5th and then return to a seasonal service again for the final weekend operation - Thanksgiving - October 7th to 10th.

Every trip will accommodate passengers boarding at Union, Exhibition, Port Credit, the 'Oakville Real Estate' area, Burlington, St. Catharines and Niagara Falls station stops. Each train will be equipped with bicycle coaches - specially designed rail cars for passengers' bicycles. Riders are able to use their locks to secure their bike and enjoy a comfortable ride to their destination in one of the other coaches. The bicycle coaches are great for those that ride the 140 km’s of trails in the 'Oakville Real Estate' area that are looking to ride somewhere new for the day.

"Public transit is an important priority for our government, which is why we've invested over $4.7 billion in GO Transit since 2003," said Ontario Minister of Transportation, Kathleen Wynne. "Taking the GO Train to Niagara is an easy and comfortable way to travel and enjoy all that the Niagara region has to offer."

The service will offer one trip each way on Friday evenings and three trips each day on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays between Niagara Falls and Toronto. This service will be great for those in the 'Oakville Real Estate' market that want to get out to the Niagara wine region for the day or weekend.
