People Mover Project

Ministry of Infrastructure

The City of Niagara Falls is one of Canada's most important tourism areas and improved services are necessary to ensure it remains a priority for visitors from around the world.

The City of Niagara Falls has long had a vision to provide a modern integrated people mover system to enhance the experience of visitors and extend their stay. Niagara Falls' current People Mover System was inaugurated in 1985. The new bus system will enhance the existing transportation systems already in place. It is designed to provide greater access for visitors to the tourism facilities within the Niagara Falls area. The proposed route will also include a connection to the VIA station, where riders can access the new GO Transit service.

The Government of Canada has previously announced its contribution of up to $25 million towards this initiative, and today's announcement confirms matching funding from the Province of Ontario towards these improvements.

Federal and provincial financial support is conditional on the project meeting all applicable eligibility and approval requirements and on the signing of a contribution agreement with the City of Niagara Falls.
