The summer is upon us and it’s time to realize that there is so much to do in Ontario. GO Transit recently announced it’s “weekend train service to Niagara and Barrie. … The company announced schedules for two routes that will run throughout the summer months, making a quick getaway to wine country or an escape to a nearby beach a cinch for riders.” Now it’s easier than ever to enjoy all the beauty Ontario has to offer with the ease of public transportation offered by GO Transit!
In anticipation to this returning service, Julio & I will be joining media friends to experience the service first hand. Make sure to follow along on social media with @Fashionights & @DoTheDaniel during our #GOgetaway and to see what our friends love most about the convenient new services.
“Torontonians and visitors looking to explore Ontario’s wine region can enjoy a gridlock-free visit to Niagara, where they can follow a network of bicycle paths, take in picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake or experience a bicycle-powered epicurean and winery adventure, all without the need for a designated driver. Those who want to explore without a bike in tow are offered a GO Bus shuttle that will meet trains in St. Catharines with a direct route to Niagara-on-the-Lake.”
With a sneak peek of the services taking place this weekend, full summer services will begin Friday, July 3, to Monday, Sept 7. “Service will pick back up for Thanksgiving weekend (Friday, Oct. 9, to Monday, Oct. 12), giving riders the chance to see the beautiful fall foliage as leaves change colours in the Niagara region. Riders can catch the service from Union Station or Exhibition once-daily on Fridays and three-times daily on Saturdays, Sunday and holidays.”
Service to Barrie and the beauty and activities the region has to offer will be “beginning Saturday, June 27, through Monday, Sept. 7, GO Transit’s seasonal service to this charming city on the shore of Lake Simcoe will relieve riders from a crowded commute on Highway 400 and quickly land them in the heart of the city’s historic downtown, where they can take in all that Barrie has to offer.”
For those of you who are excited about these new services as we are, you’ll follow along as we visit the Inniskillin & Jackson Triggs wineries which are just a few of the beautiful options available to you with the GO Transit routes this summer.
With festivals, family adventures, romantic getaways and so many more options, this summer why not take advantage of an easy escape to enjoy all the beauty Ontario has to offer? It couldn’t be easier to make sure you make the most of the summer with GO Transit.
