Learn more about accessibility on transit.


During peak hours, Niagara Region Transit can be over passenger capacity, which may result in not all passengers having a seat.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee each passenger a seat. Seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

As a courtesy, we ask passengers to give up their seat for a customer with mobility difficulties or expectant mothers.


Smoking is not allowed on any Niagara Region Transit buses or in any shelter.

Stops along the Route

Passengers can only board and depart the bus at designated stops along the route. Bus drivers are unable pick-up/drop-off passengers in between stops.


Strollers are acceptable on Niagara Region Transit buses.

If wheelchairs are occupying the accessible area, strollers need to be folded upon entering a Niagara Region Transit bus.
