Niagara Region has unanimously approved a three year extension of Niagara Regional Transit, after achieving unanimous approval of the agreement by the service operators. This action keeps our current inter-municipal service running while the Region and local area municipalities continue to work on a new integrated transit service for Niagara.
Niagara Region Transit continues to grow with approximately 500,000 rides a year. Niagara Region Transit is funded by Niagara Region and operated by Welland Transit, Niagara Falls Transit and St. Catharines Transit. The service began in 2010 as a pilot project between Niagara Region the City of Niagara Falls, the City of Welland and the St. Catharines Transit Commission. In 2017 through a unanimous triple majority process, Niagara Region obtained the jurisdiction to operate inter-municipal transit routes on a permanent basis.
