Partnership with D.A.R.T.S.

Niagara Region has partnered with D.A.R.T.S. to introduce a Hamilton Transfer Hub. Located in Stoney Creek off of Hwy. 8, this transfer hub will connect Niagara Specialized Transit riders with D.A.R.T.S. who will drive riders to their desired location in Hamilton. As a result of this partnership, Niagara Specialized Transit riders can now book all types of trips to Hamilton, including work, social and medical-related trips.

The Niagara Specialized Transit fare to the Hamilton Transfer Hub will remain consistent with all other Niagara Specialized Transit fares. Note that an additional D.A.R.T.S. fare will apply.
