Niagara Transit shuttle buses to the falls resumed today



Niagara Falls Transit is resuming its summer shuttle bus service to Niagara Falls (we mean the actual waterfalls, not the city) since GO Transit trains return to Niagara Falls (we mean the city, not the waterfalls) today, Friday, May 20.

This year, NF Transit is again operating three shuttle routes — linking the downtown area, the VIA Rail Canada Station and the downtown transit terminal with Clifton Hill, the falls, Marineland, the Fallsview Casino and Lundy’s Lane.

Passengers arriving in Niagara Falls by intercity or GO bus, GO or VIA Rail Canada trains can board an NF Transit bus operating along the Green falls shuttle route from the Downtown Niagara Falls Terminal on the south side of Bridge Street at Erie Avenue. (The terminal is almost directly across the street from the VIA Rail Canada station — the terminal for both GO buses and trains.)

Buses operating along the Red falls shuttle route serve Lundy’s Lane and Ferry Street from Garner Road to Clifton Hill, while buses operating along the Blue falls shuttle link Chippewa village, the falls and Marineland with Clifton Hill.
