Whether you’re visiting from overseas or a nearby region, there are several options for getting around Niagara’s South Coast. Access to a car can be arranged through local taxi providers, rental car companies and ride-hailing services like Uber. Bus transportation between different cities and towns is possible thanks to Niagara Region Transit, an intermunicipal system that operates year-round from Monday to Saturday.
One of the best parts about travel is the journey itself.
Bringing your own bike, or renting one, can be a big bonus to anyone who sees cycling as more than a means of transport. Ride from one community to the next on the Greater Niagara Circle Route, a 140 km trail system that also doubles as a great opportunity to sightsee.
Parking & Accessibility
Although Niagara’s South Coast is made up of four individual municipalities, each of them is similar in the way they offer parking. Ample parking can be found on public roads and streets with both paid and free options available where and when permitted. Downtown parking in some municipalities is free for a certain period of time. Parking in business lots and on private property should follow all regulations set by the owner.
Meeting accessibility standards is a shared commitment among public and private organizations all across Ontario. Persons with disabilities are to be given the same opportunities and benefits as any other visitors. Despite best efforts to provide a barrier-free environment, including this website, please contact us if you have concerns about barriers of any kind.
