On Thursday, July 23, Niagara Regional Council passed a temporary face covering by-law (By-law 2020-46) to require residents to wear mandatory face coverings in enclosed public places, and on Regional and Municipal transit beginning Friday, July 31st. This by-law is to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in indoor public spaces as more businesses and services begin to reopen. Exemptions and other details are posted at niagararegion.ca/covid19.

Niagara transit operators providing free transit to residents travelling to get COVID-19 vaccination
Niagara transit operators are pleased to be providing free transit fare to residents to and from their COVID-19 vaccination appointments. This offer is to support the health and safety of the community by providing Niagara residents with access to life saving COVID-19 vaccinations at the location they are booked to receive it.
To receive the free fare, riders are required to show the driver a vaccination appointment confirmation (e-mail or other format) to board and proof of vaccination for the return trip. This process applies for appointments for both the first and second dose. Rides can be to/from one of the 11 vaccination sites operated by Niagara Region.
Should vaccinations become available at some doctors, pharmacies or other locations, those trips also qualify under this program. Information on Niagara Region’s vaccination program. For information about getting to the Niagara Falls Vaccination Clinic, visit ours Bus Route and Schedules page.
All riders are to observe COVID-19 protocols. Masks are mandatory on all forms of transit and physical distancing of two metres (six feet) should be maintained wherever possible.
