St. Catharines, Ont. GO transit riders can return to routine. Train service resumed at St. Catharines GO station a week sooner than expected, provincial transit agency Metrolinx said in a news release.

On Thursday, Metrolinx announced construction had wrapped ahead of schedule and GO train service at the station would resume that day.

The reinstated trains are:

  • weekday westbound trips arriving at St. Catharines GO at 7:30 p.m. and 12:44 a.m. 

  • a weekday eastbound trip departing the station at 9:34 p.m. 

  • a weekend westbound trip arriving in at 6:55 p.m. 

  • a weekend eastbound trip departing at 8:46 p.m.
