Niagara service increases or not, whatever Niagara service continues still needs to include West Harbour GO as soon as possible. And later, that may defacto justify regular Niagara when accounting for increases of Hamiltonian boardings.

With Metrolinx spending $50+ million on a relatively luxurious GO station in Hamilton (West Harbour GO). Let's admit it, as imperfect West Harbour GO is, as work slowly progresses towards 2017 completion -- West Harbour GO is apprently become among one of the best-looking GO stations on the entire GO network.

West Harbour GO capex cost is relatively high at this moment, due to them rushing to open the station long before service was ready for it (only 2 trains per direction per day). A large utilization increase, already planned, is needed in the coming years. The goal is to do all the low lying apples as soon as possible to get relatively easy taxpayer returns on West Harbour GO sooner.

Perhaps regular weekday service may not happen just yet. But it is one good next step towards justifying continued increases in Niagara GO trains.
