Niagara Falls state-of-the art bus transportation system seems to be a big hit with visitors. The transportation system, owned and operated by the City of Niagara Falls and the Niagara Parks Commission, began operating on August 20th, 2012.
Twenty articulated (60 feet long) buses and 7 standard (40 feet long) buses take visitors near and outside the park on 4 routes (red, green, blue, and purple). These routes connect theLundy’s Lane, Victoria Avenue, Clifton Hill, Fallsview, Main and Ferry, Queen Street areas with Niagara Parks attractions, and hotels across the city of Niagara Falls. You can get on and off the bus at as many locations as you wish without an additional fee. Television screens are found behind the driver and in the back of the buses that feature city weather conditions, local events, tourist attractions, and hotels.
There is one route that takes visitors daily exclusively to the lovely village of Niagara-on-the-Lake 26 kilometres north of the falls.
All buses are equipped with front-mounted bicycle racks, making it easy to access the Niagara River Recreation Trail by bike.
WEGO buses are fully equipped to ensure persons with disabilities are able to travel independently throughout the service area. Admission fees and fares for accessibility support persons (when accompanying a person with a disability) who specially identify themselves are waived at all Niagara Parks attractions and transportation systems.
During the summer months, Niagara Parks and Metrolinx partner to make it easier to visit Niagara Falls from the Greater Toronto area. Visitors can purchase travel packages that combine around-trip Go Train ticket with access to the WEGO transportation system.
