I know I’ve been before I was just really hoping for one last high floor ride 

You'll have to go all the way to Sarnia for that.

Due to the current situation with regards to COVID-19 ‚Äď some services on our WEGO transportation system have been cancelled or reduced.

What is Niagara Falls Transit Services doing to protect Operators and riders?

  • Effective March 17, to exercise safe social distancing between the Operator and Passengers (as a precautionary measure against COVID-19), the seat immediately behind the operator on buses that have these seats will be blocked off from Passenger‚Äôs use with signage and tape. Further there will be signs posted on fareboxes asking riders that are showing symptoms or who meet travel ban criteria to not board our vehicles at this time.
  • We use industry standard products to disinfect and sanitize our fleet on a regular maintenance schedule. We are in the process of starting additional cleaning with sanitizing crews immediately. Fleet will be coordinating the application of a microbial shield onboard our entire fleet with a contracted provider shortly (this includes our staff fleet of shuttles/ trucks etc).
  • Touchpoints at transit facilities are undergoing more frequent cleaning and sanitation.

I don't know how uncommon this sight is but today I saw WEGO 5304 on route 104. It was an extra with the sign saying "EXTRA EXTRA". The bus I was on was also the 104 and when both buses arrived at the NF Bus Terminal, 5304 went out of service.
