GO Transit is getting into the Tourism Commuter market by shuttling passengers to Niagara Falls and St. Catherines on Weekends and Holidays starting Summer 2009.
Four trips per weekend and holiday are expected.
Bus service will start in Septmeber with 9 daily trips for working commuters. WHat is interesting, is VIA Rail added extra weekend service over the last couple of years, and to have VIA Rail and GO Transit compete for the same tourism dollars is fairly unique.
Students of the University of Guelph, Waterloo and Laurier universities, and Colleges may find this an attractive method to commute home on weekends. Ride VIA to Toronto and catch GO to Niagara.. and vice versa.
