Getting Around in Niagara falls

Edit This
i

Getting around the greater Niagara Region can be very simple and inexpensive if you know how to get around.

Unlike the United States, most public transportation providers operate in the municipality they are associated with.  Things are changing though, and some agencies are amalgamating into regional authorities...like that of the US.

For intercity service, depend on intercity carriers.
