Niagara Region Transit provides intermunicipal service between communities in Niagara Region, ON.
Regional council approved 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. Regional transit in the Niagara Region has been discussed for many years, but finally became a reality on September 12, 2011. After the pilot phase, Regional council voted to continue the initiative in 2014.
Effective September 6, 2016, Niagara Region Transit added 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 the OnDemand to Niagara-on-the-Lake.
