All aboard! GO to hit Grimsby in 2021

Weekday GO rail service will come to Grimsby in 2021, extending to Niagara Falls in 2023, Ontario MInister of Transportation Steven Del Duca announced Monday in St. Catharines.

Subject to a final agreement with CN Rail, Metrolinx will start the consultations, planning and design work required to implement the service including:
• Track improvements;
• New and upgraded rail stations
• A new layover facility in Niagara Falls
• Additional GO rail fleet to provide service along the corridor
• Adding more than 30 kms of new track.

Three other stations are proposed along the corridor in addition to the Confederation GO Station – a new station on Casablanca Boulevard in Grimsby as well as upgraded VIA rail stations in St. Catharines and Niagara Falls.

“There is now a firm timeline and we look forward to working with Metrolinx and the Province on this important service for Niagara residents. Strengthening our connection to and from the GTA enhances our ability to attract new people to Niagara, creating new opportunities for job creation and business expansion,” noted a regional release from all 12 Niagara mayors.

“Today we are seeing the power of speaking with one voice. This announcement is the result of a strong and united effort across Niagara to make our number one priority of daily GO Train service a reality.
