It might be time to start planning a day trip. Metrolinx is getting some popular train routes back next month, just in time for the long weekend. Starting August 1, GO trains from Toronto to Niagara Falls will be resuming service on Saturdays and Sundays, including the Monday holiday.
If you want to go visit a winery or just hang out near the Falls, you can once again hop on a GO Train to get there.
According to Metrolinx, there will be four departure times for passengers to choose from when travelling between Toronto and Niagara Falls.
Purchasing a roundtrip will cost you $30 a person with their Go-Niagara Parks travel package. The package comes with some other perks for you to enjoy when you arrive.
For example, it provides you with a WEGO bus pass, which will help you navigate the city and Niagara Parks attractions.
From the train station, you can hop right on the WEGO buses and get on or off as you please for two days.
If you're going as a group, you can grab a $65 pass which will cover two adults and three kids.
The trains depart from Union Station in Toronto and make stops at Exhibition, Port Credit, Oakville, Burlington, Aldershot, St. Catherines and Niagara Falls, according to GO Transit.
