Niagara Falls station in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada is served by Via Rail trains connecting it with Toronto, and by the Maple Leaf joint Via-Amtrak train between Toronto and New York City. From summer 2009, it is also served by seasonal GO Transit trains operating by way of the Lakeshore West line between Toronto and Niagara Falls on weekends and holidays.

The Victorian Gothic Revival style station was built as the terminus for Great Western Railway (1879–1882) and Grand Trunk Railway (1882–1923).[1] The station was renovated in 1951 and 1967 (east wing with restaurant was partially demolished) and again in the 1980s or 1990s.[2] It was later acquired by CN Rail (1923-1970s) and now used by Via Rail (1970s-) and GO Transit.

The station is staffed and wheelchair-accessible, and offers free long-term parking.

GO Transit operates 12 weekday bus services and 8 weekends and holiday services from the station to Burlington GO Station
