Niagara Region has partnered with DARTS to offer a Hamilton Transfer Hub. Located in Stoney Creek off Hwy. 8, this transfer hub will connect Niagara Specialized Transit riders with DARTS, who will drive riders to their desired location in Hamilton. Niagara Specialized Transit riders can now book all types of trips to Hamilton, including work, social and medical-related trips.
The Niagara Specialized Transit fare to the Hamilton Transfer Hub is the same as all other Niagara Specialized Transit fares. However, an additional DARTS fare will apply.
