NRT OnDemand - Coming Jan. 3, 2022

Niagara Region and the City of Port Colborne are pleased to announce the launch of NRT OnDemand transit service in Port Colborne, beginning Jan. 3, 2022.

The launch of NRT OnDemand is a partnership between Niagara Region and the City of Port Colborne. The highly successful on-demand rideshare service, already operating in six other Niagara communities, replaces the fixed route service operated by Welland Transit, which will end on Dec. 31, 2021.

Now all residents in Port Colborne will have access to transit services no matter where they live, with NRT OnDemand covering the whole city. NRT OnDemand offers riders in smaller, rural communities more equitable access to transit than conventional, fixed route bus service can provide.

Riders are able to book trips in real time by using the NRT OnDemand mobile app, or by calling 289-302-2172, and selecting a pick-up and drop-off location within the service zone. Once the ride is booked, passengers are directed to a nearby stop location to await their ride. Individuals without access to a smartphone are able to purchase transit passes at Port Colborne City Hall and Vale Health and Wellness Centre. 

NRT OnDemand will operate in Port Colborne Monday to Saturday between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. beginning Jan. 3, 2022. Fares are $3 per local trip, and $6 for inter-municipal trips. The $4 fare remains in effect for riders that wish to connect to Niagara Region Transit's Route 25 (PC Link) at Port Colborne City Hall. Port Colborne will be the seventh community serviced by NRT OnDemand, joining Grimsby, Lincoln, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Pelham, Wainfleet and West Lincoln.

Niagara Region was one of the first communities in Canada to collaborate with Via, the global leader in TransitTech, for an on-demand transportation service. The fleet’s vehicle are mini-vans, which offer comfortable seating for up to five passengers. All COVID-19 protocols are in place for the health and safety of passengers and operators.
