You can experience the rest of Niagara Falls—including its rich history, thriving culture and vibrant communities, all set along the scenic Niagara River—via the Discover Niagara shuttle. Running from May 15 through October 2017, the hop-on/hop-off shuttle stops conveniently at Niagara Falls Train Station. It’s convenient and easy—and it’s free of charge. The Discover Niagara shuttle covers a 14-mile route, running from “the Falls to the Fort” in Youngstown, as Niagarans like to say, allowing visitors to stop at more than 12 destinations along the way. Four shuttle buses run each day, making stops every 30 to 40 minutes; a full roundtrip takes about two hours. Last year, 33,000 riders rode the shuttle. The shuttle offers complimentary WiFi onboard and invites riders to get social, using the hashtags #DiscoverNiagaraShuttle, #DiscoverNiagara, #Falls2theFort and #EnjoyTheRide. Download the free Discover Niagara Shuttle App at Discoverniagara.org to find out information, history and stories about the places and the people of the communities you’ll be visiting, as well as track the buses. The app also includes an interactive way-finding map to help you find cool things to do and see whenever you hop off the shuttle.
