  • Became the contract operator for transit in Port Colborne on March 31, 2008.
  • Operated transit service in Pelham as a one year trial from September 2008 until August 2009.

Routes

Maps & Schedules As of September 2018, route numbers were modified and changed to 3 digits (in the 500-series), in anticipation of Niagara Region Transit assuming transit responsibilities for Welland Transit and other Niagara region agencies. In January, 2023, the anticipation came to fruition, carrying the same numbering structure.
