    Transit Service Update

    Description

    EFFECTIVE MONDAY JANUARY 25TH, 2021

    Niagara Falls Transit has closely monitored our transit ridership during this pandemic. When service was reduced to a Sunday-level service this past Monday, January 18, 2021 it was to comply with the provincial State of Emergency order that businesses were to close by 8:00p.m by January 14, 2021. We now understand that essential services across the City are allowed to remain open after this time. As a result, we may be stranding essential or frontline workers, or those shopping for essential goods by ending service at 9:00 pm daily. 

    In order to provide the best level of service to Niagara Falls transit riders given the current Provincial restrictions, as of Monday, January 25th, we will return to regular winter City and WEGO service, minus 30 minute peak services on City day routes. This represents 74% of our pre-pandemic regular Winter season service. 

     

    We regret any inconvenience this may have caused our riders.

  • Notice of Remote Electronic Open House (AM-2020-007)

    Description

    The City of Niagara Falls approved a Secondary Plan for the GO Transit Station Area in 2018 through Official Plan Amendment No. 125.  The Secondary Plan policies aim to support transit supportive development and to create a walkable neighbourhood with a mix of uses, a range of housing choices and new employment opportunities.

    The City has initiated an amendment to the City’s Zoning By-law to implement the policies of the Secondary Plan within the area bounded by Bridge Street to the north, Morrison Street to the south, River Road to the east and Victoria Avenue to the west.

    The draft amendment proposes to replace the current Central Business Commercial (CB) Zone with CB1, CB2, CB3, CB4, CB5 and CB5 zones.

    The amendment includes:

    • The continuation of all current uses under the CB Zone, with  the addition of a ‘vacation rental unit’ use for all CB zones;
    • A maximum retail floor area of 930sq. m. (10,010 sq. ft.) in all CB zones;
    • Ground floor residential uses permitted on the ground floor within the CB3 to CB6 zones and within some areas of the CB2 zone;
    • Varying height restrictions for each zone: 4 storeys for CB1; 6 storeys for CB2, 8 storeys for CB3, 10 storeys for CB4, 14 storeys for CB5 and 20 storeys for CB6;
    • Parking requirements at a rate of 0.75 spaces per dwelling unit, no minimum parking requirement for non-residential uses, and new requirements for bicycle parking; and
    • New built form regulations regarding screening requirements for roof top materials and ground level parking (structure or ground level); and,
    • New definitions for amenity area, licensed establishment, nightclubs, and bicycle parking.
