Community Bus returns to Port Colborne

Posted by Corporate Communications on Thursday, June 25th, 2020

Starting Monday, June 29, 2020, at 8 a.m. the Port Colborne Community Bus will be resuming services for Port Colborne residents after a break in service since April 9, 2020, due to COVID-19.

The Community Bus, operated by Welland Transit, will be running in Port Colborne from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Mondays – Fridays. Riders will return to front door boarding and will be required to pay the $3 fare. As City Hall, located at 66 Charlotte Street, remains closed due to COVID-19, riders will be unable to purchase tickets are asked to use exact change when paying their fare.

Niagara Region Transit, which includes the Port Colborne Link, is continuing to operate on their Saturday schedule, which is an hourly frequency Monday – Saturday.

Brock University and Niagara College students (including U-Pass holders) will pay the full adult fare during the summer, effective July 1. NRT monthly passes are available for sale at the Welland Transit terminal.

Riders will notice throughout the month of June that buses are being retrofitted with Plexiglas bio barriers to better protect drivers and riders, promote social distancing, and to allow for the return of front door boarding.

Both Niagara Region Transit and Welland Transit will continue to restrict the number of passengers on its vehicles in an effort to support physical distancing. However, as the province moves into the next phase of recovery, ridership will continue to increase. Therefore, in alignment with Provincial guideless and the advice of Public Health, it is strongly recommended that all passengers wear face coverings while using public transit. Transit providers continue to sanitize their conventional and specialized transit vehicles on a regular basis. Click here for more information about how to wear a face covering safely.
