Niagara Falls Transit returns to pre-pandemic winter schedule

·1 min read

Niagara Falls Transit has elected to revert to its pre-pandemic winter schedule.

The city said in a press release in order to provide the best level of service to riders given provincial restrictions, it will return to regular winter city and WEGO service, minus 30-minute peak services, on day routes.

Changes take effect Monday.

On Jan. 18, in an attempt to comply with the state of emergency orders issued by the province, Niagara Falls Transit preemptively adjusted its hours of operation to reflect the average business closure of 8 p.m.; however, it acknowledged that it could have been stranding essential service workers.

The city issued an apology on its website for any inconvenience it caused transit users.
