Regarding a second stop in Hamilton, the location talked about for years has been near Liuna Station, as the CN rail line could support all day service to Toronto, whereas the current downtown location cannot because of the track configuration and the amount of freight traffic.

As for the fact it will have to wait until they expand eastwards, if the spec is to be believed (no corroborating info on the GO webpage) Go will be offering 9 bus trips each way to Niagara Falls staring this September. The trips will be rush hour service on weekdays only.

Of course the bad news is the trips connect with the GO train system in Burlington. Hopefully they will stop in Hamilton. We need is a champion for the city who will draw transit through this area instead of around it, much the same way McNab did for the railway.

Stations will be located in Grimbsby, St. Catherines, and Niagara Falls, likely near the QEW. There was no mention of rail, which is what these cities have been pushing for.
