NRT OnDemand service is coming to Niagara-on-the-Lake starting Nov. 23.
Riders in Niagara-on-the-Lake will be able to book a shared ride for local trips to a designated area within their municipality. Initially there will be a limited coverage system, which essentially facilitates trips along Regional Rd. 55 (Niagara Stone Rd.) while including the areas of Old Town, Virgil and Glendale.
Riders will be able to connect to Niagara Region Transit conventional service at the transit hubs located at Niagara Outlet Mall and Niagara College (Glendale Campus).
The arrival of the on-demand service is through a partnership between Niagara Region and the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and replaces their previous fixed-route service. Two dedicated vehicles will service Niagara-on-the-Lake. There is a possibility NRT OnDemand service will be expanded in the community at a later date.
Due to COVID-19, riders are required to wear masks, and will be separated from drivers with a partition, in line with Niagara Region Public Health guidelines. Vehicles are cleaned thoroughly and frequently.
Everyone attending the photo opportunity in person are asked to wear face coverings, which will cover the nose, mouth and chin, and maintain physical distancing of two metres during the event. Media who can’t attend but wish to receive a copy of any photos can contact Norm Miller.
