Here WEGO: Getting Around Using Niagara Falls’ Traveler’s Transport

wp5.jpegUnlike many destinations, Niagara Falls fully understands the difficulty of trying to move from attraction to attraction when travelers are away from home. Thus, the city created a transportation system specifically with tourists’ needs in mind. The WEGO is Canadian Niagara’s unique bus line, which quickly and efficiently delivers visitors to all the places they want and need to go. Learn a bit more about the WEGO system before your trip to Niagara Falls, and you’ll have a hitch-free vacation transportation experience.

About WEGO

WEGO buses are designed to help tourists traverse the city’s best landmarks with ease. Brightly colored in the hue of their route, these buses are easy to spot, and visitors can hop on and off at their leisure. One pass gives tourists access to every WEGO bus route, which means they no longer need to worry about rental cars or taxis — or dreaded municipal buses — to get around. A bus will appear at designated stops every 20 to 30 minutes, so travelers never have to wait long to head to their next destination, and they can even download WEGO’s app, Bus Time Tools, to get real-time updates on their next bus.

Here’s a rundown of the important destinations serviced by each line.

The Red Line

  • Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort. Much more than a simple hotel or even just a casino, this resort offers every table game your heart longs for as well as world-class acts at the Avalon Theatre and 18 distinct dining options.
  • Oh Canada, Eh? Dinner Theatre. Grab dinner and a show at this award-winning and uproarious theater. Learn about Canada and fill up on the nation’s signature dishes while the whole family laughs to tears.
  • Canada One Factory Outlets. This place is a mall with it all: Fantastic name-brand designers like Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike and more have stores with discounted merchandise, so travelers can shop for as long as they like.
  • Clifton Hill. With more attractions than a single blog can name, this “Street of Fun by the Falls” offers museums, arcades, mini golf, shopping, restaurants, and more.
  • Fallsview Indoor Water Park. Splash to your heart’s content at this temperature-controlled indoor water park. Come rain or shine, your family can enjoy the park’s slides, play areas, and pools all day (or week) long.
  • Skylon Tower. The top of this skyscraper offers by far the best views of the falls and the surrounding areas — but a trip to the top probably isn’t wise for those with a fear of heights.
  • Greg Frewin Theatre. Prepare to be amazed, for this magic show offers world-class illusions and special effects to fool even the biggest skeptic.
  • Bus and train terminals. Perhaps not the most exciting destination, ground travelers to Niagara Falls can rest assured that they need not grapple with other transport within the confines of the city.
  • The Whirlpool Rapids. The rapids of the Niagara River are the largest standing waves on the continent, and travelers can test their limits by walking by them, hovering over them, or even kayaking through them.
  • Queen Victoria Park. Hands down, this stretch of walkway and greenery offers the most views of the falls, plus a lovely stroll and picnic space.
  • Bird Kingdom. Filled with 80 different species which equates to roughly 400 birds, this tropical paradise has a unique rainforest garden (and waterfall) to explore as well.
