Niagara Region Transit provides transit service in Niagara Region, ON.

History

Regional Council approved Niagara Region Transit as a three year pilot project on June 23, 2010. They granted money for new buses and operating costs to the three major cities' transit systems, Niagara Falls Transit, St. Catharines Transit, and Welland Transit, to operate intercity routes linking the three cities.[1] The initial three routes (50/55, 60/65, 70/75) began service on September 12, 2011. After the pilot phase, Regional Council voted to continue the initiative in 2014; existing intercity routes to Fort Erie and Port Colborne were also rebranded to Regional routes around this time.

Effective September 6, 2016, Niagara Region Transit added a sixth route 40/45 between Niagara Falls and St. Catharines via Niagara College. The new route took over some service destinations from route 50/55, and modified service hours for both lines. Express branches of routes 40/45, 60/65 and 70/75 were introduced in January and September 2019, replacing express services to post-secondary institutions previously operated by local systems.

In August 2020, NRT OnDemand was launched to give passengers in the western end of Niagara Region connections to St Catharines and Welland, as well as local service. NRT OnDemand utilizes wheelchair accessible Toyota Sienna minivans for the service. It replaces uLinc and Pelham Transit, with plans to expand OnDemand service to Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Beginning on January 1, 2023, local systems St. Catharines Transit, Niagara Falls Transit, and Welland Transit were merged into Niagara Region Transit. Niagara-on-the-Lake and Fort Erie onDemand service also commences operations by NRT.
