  • Remember the ticket counter at the Windsor train station is open daily from 5:15 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and there is also a self-service ticketing kiosk to buy and print your tickets. The station has few amenities, so bring your own food and snacks.

  • Give yourself plenty of time to book your train travel from Windsor to Niagara Falls because there is only one train available daily. The train always leaves at 2:00 in the afternoon, so be sure and plan your trip around that schedule.

  • Pack plenty of reading materials and bring your laptop or other electronic device to stay occupied during the 5.5-hour-long train journey.

  • Understand before you book your train travel that the ride from Windsor to Niagara Falls requires switching trains one time. You will have to switch trains at the Aldershot train station in Hamilton.
