GO southwest... to Niagara Falls

On Sunday, the Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario announced that they are investing $2.5 million to help GO Transit build four park-and-ride facilities along the Queen Elizabeth Way in Niagara Region.

GO will start to build the first park-and-ride lot at Casablanca Boulevard and the QEW in Grimsby this spring. It will determine the other three sites later this year.

GO is building these lots to support upcoming GO bus service to the Niagara Region. GO Transit buses could operate to Niagara as early as this fall with rush-hour trips and limited mid-day and evening round trips. Buses will start and end their trips at the Burlington GO Station and travel along the Queen Elizabeth Way to and from Grimsby, St. Catharines and Niagara Falls.

The federal government has set aside as much as $1.25 million for these projects. Federal funding is conditional on the projects meeting all eligibility requirements of the Building Canada Fund and the province signing a contribution agreement.

Introducing service beyond the current GO Transit service area — to Brantford, Cambridge, Kitchener, Peterborough and Waterloo is a major goal of GO’s strategic plan, GO 2020. (.pdf) (15.42 MB)
