Bus

  • The Niagara Transportation Centre is in the old part of town. Greyhound Canada buses depart for Toronto ($19, 1½ to two hours, five daily) and Buffalo, NY ($12, one to 1½ hours, six daily). GO Transit also operates services from Toronto (via Burlington) by combination of rail and bus and, in recent years, direct rail services on weekends (June to September). Check with www.gotransit.com.
  • Niagara Airbus operates a door-to-door shared shuttle service between Niagara Falls and Toronto Pearson International Airport (one way/return $94/147, 1½ hours) or Buffalo International airport, NY ($95/156, 1½ hours).
  • The Fallsview Casino Resort runs the Safeway Tours bus hourly from Toronto, making stops from Gerrard St E, to Carlton St and then Spadina Ave, finally arriving at the casino. Noncasino members pay the $20 return price on arrival, making it one of the cheapest ways to get to the falls, though no luggage is permitted and adult ID is required as it is a casino bus. Just turn up, or reserve on the website (safewaytours.net/casino-tours) as it can fill up.

Train

Rail services from Niagara Falls Train Station to Toronto operate only as a weekend summer service operated by GO Transit. You can, however, get to New York City ($151, 11½ hours, once daily).
