Niagara Falls is a fun destination and a popular get away destination during the summer for Torontonians. I have been to the Falls a few times, via QEW, driving past Oakville, Burlington, and St. Catherines. Each trip took a bit longer than the suggested two hours due to high volume of traffic.
When GO transit Tweet appeared in my feed telling about a direct service, naturally I became very interested to use it.
A few good points: it beats the weekend traffic, and it is direct (eliminates the transfer to the bus at Burlington)
One not so good point: it is limited to a few times a day on weekends between June 28-Sept. 2.
I understand that the service makes sense when there is demand for it.
In fact the Niagara Falls bus service offered by Niagara Parks also runs full service during June 28-Sept. 2. providing convenient transport to attractions around the Falls, adult $7; child $4 for 24-hour pass. This makes June-Sept the best time of the year to travel to Niagara Falls.
