TRANSPORT IN NIAGARA FALLS

ESPAÑOL

HOW TO GET THERE AND AWAY

By air:

  • The nearest airports are Niagara Falls International in the State of New York and Hamilton International in Ontario. Both are very small and their few flights are usually expensive.
  • Effectively, the two main airports are Toronto Pearson and Buffalo-Niagara:
    • Niagara Airbus is a shared shuttle service that takes about 1 hour and a half to both of them; the price is around $ 90/150 one way / round trip for 4 occupants.
    • In both there are offices of the major car rental companies.

By land:

  • From Toronto: see TORONTO: GETTING THERE BY LAND. Once in the Canadian Transport Center, it’s still almost 3 km to the falls. I went on foot and walked back, but you can take bus 104.
  • From Buffalo:
    • A taxi from the center should cost at least $ 50.
    • The NY Niagara Falls Transport Center is nearly 10 km (7 miles) away, so it is not convenient to get there. The following transports in the chart stop closer. To consider:
      • Bus number 40, is the best deal, stops in the very same waterfall.
      • Coaches go to the Canadian Transport Center, the one mentioned in the previous section.
      • The train is also stops almost 3 km away; from there you can take bus 52A bus.

GETTING AROUND

The whole area next to the falls can be visited easily on foot or by bicycle. For those who want to use a transport:

  • Canadian side: WEGO. It is a bus system designed for tourists; buying a one day pass (7 CAD $) it can be used as often as desired. It has three lines that stop along the falls and most hotels.
  • US side: the only nearby public transport is the urban bus NFTA 210.
