Niagara Falls on a summer day. Right: GO Train.

After over half a year of waiting for the warm weather, Ontario is getting a taste of summer, which means it's time for more outdoor adventures!

Metrolinx says they are bringing back more GO and UP Express service in addition to their Niagara Falls seasonal trips.

This means that starting May 21, there will be some changes to the transit schedules.

"Starting May 21, the transit agency is bringing back seasonal weekend and holiday service to Niagara Falls, and more service on UP Express, Barrie, Kitchener and Stouffville Lines," a post on Metrolinx's blog said.

Starting Victoria Day weekend until Thanksgiving weekend, rail service to Niagara Falls will be available on weekends and holidays. There will be three Lakeshore West Line trips to Niagara Falls leaving Union Station at 8:51 a.m., 12:51 p.m. and 4:51 p.m.

There will also be three trips to Toronto leaving Niagara Falls at 11:15 a.m., 3:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. If you'd like to stay a little later, there will be a GO Bus available, but make sure to check the schedule before committing to this option.

If you're a biker and want a change of scenery but don't want to bike from the 6ix to Niagara Falls, you're in luck. Besides having 12-cars, the trains will also include three bike coaches that can each carry 18 bicycles.

Other than using your PRESTO card to tap on and off the train or bus, you can also grab a weekend pass for unlimited travel for $10 for one day on the weekend or $15 for the whole weekend.
