    I was looking at some documents for recent NRT meetings and spotted mention of a new route 116/216 for niagara falls

    Based on what I've found it looks like it will replace WEGO Red and Blue lines

    will begin service September 1, running on a 30-minute frequency between Garner Loop and Main Street using artics, exact details still unknown

    There was a Crystal Beach group of stops on the original single route, continuing further down the road as their route 760-Yellow route before switching to demand-response service.

    The closest area with scheduled bus service is the Fort Erie Municipal Center, the transfer hub for the last scheduled service, and NRT Route 22's Niagara Falls-Fort Erie Shuttle at present.

    Additionally, Niagara Falls' WEGO service had a shuttle from Niagara Falls to what I think is Mather Park during some centennial / Canada Day event.  It was very short in the time it ran.

     

    IIRC the WEGO shuttle to Mather Park/Old Fort Erie was only for the War of 1812 bicentennial

    Question. Are units: #1170 and #1397 retired for sure?

    1397 still active in Niagara Falls, will be going for refurb later this summer after 1396 returns

    Very curious on what is going on with the Welland fleet. I've noticed they haven't been using a lot of their older equipment lately and the Vicinity buses except for 1154 and 1162.

    1146 and 1149 have been sitting in the dead line at the Niagara Falls yard for at least a month

  6. NF-based units that shared numbers with SCT buses have been renumbered as follows:

    21601-21604 are now 1606-1609 ; 21805-21808 are now 1814-1817; artics 21809-21810 are now 1863-1864; 22112 is now 2124, and no confirmation yet as to 21811...currently the only one tracking in its new number is 1817(former 21808)
