Niagara Falls Transit operates the transit service in the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario.

History

  • Niagara Transit began operations in October 1960.
  • The system was previously known as Niagara Transit before an overhall of the system's image in 2009. This included a new livery consisting of shades of blue and lime green, which debut on Niagara Falls Transit's 2009 ElDorado buses.
  • Niagara Falls Transit operated the Falls Shuttle routes until 2012, when it was taken over by WEGO.
