Inter-Municipal Transit

ONE Transit in Niagara

At the May 26, 2022 special meeting of the Niagara Regional Council, the new Niagara Transit Commission was formed. Regional representatives from all over Niagara approved the creation of a consolidated transit system in partnership with the City of Niagara Falls, The City of St. Catharines, St. Catharines Transit Commission, the City of Welland, and the Region of Niagara to develop a regionally integrated transit system.

Inter-Municipal Transit

Since January 2016, the Inter-municipal Transit Working Group of Mayors, CAOs and transit managers from St. Catharines, Welland and Niagara Falls with support from the Regional Chair and CAO, have been working together to develop options for an integrated transit system that works for all of Niagara. Focused on the transit user, the working group has been working cooperatively to make improvements to the existing Niagara Region Transit services during the pilot project period (established in 2011) - to make the existing transit services the best they can be.

A service delivery and governance strategy for the future of public transit in Niagara was presented to local municipal councils for consideration in 2021. The Niagara Transit Service Delivery and Governance Strategy report commissioned by the working group provides strategic recommendations for the improvement of transit service throughout Niagara.

Throughout the fall of 2021, Regional staff presented a Service Strategy, governance strategy and public feedback to each of Niagara's municipalities and requested them to enter into a bylaw to upload all transit systems and services to a new Transit Commission to be fully operational by January 1, 2023.  

A series of public information centres were held across the Region. Information and feedback was gathered from stakeholders around the Region, contributing to the: Niagara Transit Service Delivery and Governance Strategy
