Specialized Transit Study
All Niagara Region projects

About the Project

The Specialized Transit Study is one of the key studies in Moving Transit Forward in Niagara.

To best meet the transportation and mobility needs of our aging population and residents requiring accommodation, the Linking Niagara Transit Committee is reviewing specialized transit in Niagara. IBI Group will lead this review.

The review will determine how we can meet the short- and long-term needs of regional and municipal specialized transit clients.

Key Considerations

  • Problems, gaps and opportunities with the current specialized transit system
  • Key origins and destinations, and reasons for travel
  • Types of service for the study area, connectivity and future service requirements
  • Opportunities for improved coordination or consolidation of specialized transportation services
  • Current and emerging technologies that may enhance the customer experience
  • Public engagement and community input
