Niagara Transit Governance Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

All of Niagara is considering moving to a single, consolidated transit system for our community.
This new system would bring consistent fares and operating hours throughout Niagara, new payment technology, better connections, and new efficiencies for riders.

Using feedback gathered from the community over the last 10 years, Niagara has created a Financial Model, a Governance Model, and a Service Standards Strategy that paint a possible picture of the future of transit in Niagara.

This fall, all of Niagara’s 12 municipalities and the Region will be voting on whether or not to move forward with this model.

What This Will Do for Our Community
A consolidated transit model would contribute to the social and economic prosperity of Niagara in many ways. The proposed model builds in flexibility and a region-wide approach that would allow Niagara to:

  • Create better access to jobs and services in Niagara, opening up new job options for residents in neighbouring municipalities, and new markets for businesses
  • Protect our natural environment by providing residents with more sustainable and environmentally friendly public transit options, reducing traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Prepare Niagara for the future, by making sure our transit options can scale up to meet the needs of our growing population and job market
  • Support the expansion and connectivity of GO Transit service to the region

What Happens Next
This proposal has not yet been finalized. We’re still working on the details, and we want you to help us get there. Niagara Region and the 12 local municipalities will be voting on this proposal in the fall of 2021.
