    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.
