History

Enviro500 #8008 on route 12.
  • June 30, 2008 - Route 12 was implemented during a board change period on June 30, 2008 to serve the community of Stoney Creek. It provides service for Stoney Creek citizens to reach the GO train at Burlington or to return. Prior to route restructuring, service for Stoney Creek-Burlington GO Station occurred during the whole day, generally every hour or two both directions, with more service during peak hours. Westbound trips occurred from 4:48 AM until 10:49 PM. Eastbound bus trips operated from 7:10 AM until 1:44 AM.
  • June 27, 2009 - The Niagara Falls GO Train was launched on June 27, 2009, and added a new 12C branch to the route. This branch operated express from Union Station to Niagara Falls, stopping on demand at St. Catharines, providing a trip back to Niagara Falls from Toronto after midnight.
  • September 4, 2009 - With the seasonal end of train service, route 12 was adjusted to provide year-round service to Niagara Falls, while continuing to stop in St. Catharines, Stoney Creek and the new Grimsby Park & Ride lot. Although the 12C branch initially remained unchanged, it was later eliminated as passengers could take the Lakeshore West train and transfer at Burlington GO to a regular 12 trip.
  • June 2011 - Due to heavy ridership in the summer months, GO began stationing three Enviro500 double decker buses at the Niagara Falls satellite garage, staying until the Labour Day weekend. GO also doubled up busy trips by adding a 12B branch, which operated express from Burlington GO to Niagara Falls. With enough double decker buses to cover high demand routes, route 12 and its branches now operate double decker buses at all times.
  • September 5, 2015 - All route 12 trips were extended to the Burlington Carpool Lot in order to provide connections to the Highway 407 service.
