Depending on how you feel about traveling during COVID-19. Metrolink has now made masks mandatory. They have implemented plastic shields between seats and enhanced cleaning protocols.



previous thread

Remember also that it's always free for kids age 12 and under so perfect for family trips (Niagara Falls, etc)

more info here

It is a fair distance walk from train station to the falls.

If you want to take WEGO bus from train station in Niagara Falls instead of walking, they only sell ride all day passes good for 24 hrs minimum

https://wegoniagarafalls.com/fares/

Rates Adult (13+ years old) Child (6-12 years old)
48-Hour Pass $14.00 $10.00
24-Hour Pass $9.00 $6.00
Children 5 and under ride for free all year!
All prices in Canadian $ and include tax.
All rates, routes and schedules are subject to change without notice

as for suggested activities, I finally did the rope course with my kids this week. We did the kid's course and still had a blast! Great workout, some scary bits if you're afraid of heights. Highly recommended. WEGO bus stops right at the course

for fun, free activity consider hiking the Niagara Glen. Beautiful trail right down in Niagara River gorge

Until the Province makes masks mandatory on GO, no thanks.

I don't understand the plexiglass plastic shield thing, it's a tiny divider that covers a seat beside you. But the way that the GO train seating goes is that there's a four seat in a cluster and two are facing each other. The only useful thing about those divider is to enable two passenger to seat in a cluster during rush hour but by then they could have lengthen the train since they basically cut the number of coaches in half or increase the number of trips since they cut those in half as well. You would probably feel more safer if they put a shield between clusters rather that the one beside each other.

This started on March 1. Not sure why you're posting this now, especially when GO service has been drastically reduced on all lines since then.

it'd been moved to expired deals. now it's summer and places like Niagara Falls are opening up their attractions.

There isn't even train service to Niagara right now, and the train-bus trip is a hassle and a half with the amount of stops the bus makes.

For the uninitiated does this go to your preto card when you purchase online or is it a eTicket you show the bus driver?

it's an eticket that you show to the driver or fare inspector.

you buy online, get a confirmation email that has a link to activate the pass, click it and it'll activate (takes 5min to do so).

They'll only be valid as long as the promo is on so don't buy a whole bunch, presto integration would have been nice - I am sure they could set a max limit on Sunday to $10

Unfortunately, you must purchase the ticket online ahead of time!

Do you guys remember how long the last deal lasted? On the website you have to enter your point of departure and arrival. But as I understand it isn't it unlimited travel? Or are you restricted to what you entered online?
