Transportation. How to cross border?

by zindara

Hello everybody!
We are a family of 5 travelling to USA and Canada this summer. We will arrive to Niagara by plane (Buffalo), and after visiting the falls, our plan is heading to Toronto.
I haven't been able to find how to cross to Canada!! Most of rent a car companies do not allow you to take the car from Buffalo to Toronto.
So what is the best way of moving around the area? And how can you cross to Canada with all the luggage without a rented car? Can you take a taxi or bus to the border and then another one in the other side?
Any suggestion/advise will be more than welcome.
As we travel with 3 children (1 of them only 1 year old) we would like to have something planned in advance.

I've crossed the border at Niagara Falls twice already (in 2006 and just last month) and on both occasions we used a rental car from the US, driving the car over to Canada was never an issue. You did not mention if you will be coming back to Buffalo from Toronto, so I assume you wish to drop off the rental car in Toronto. If that's the case then maybe it would be a problem, since we returned our car back to the US. With your luggage in tow, I guess the next best alternative would be to take a bus. Check out this link:

Thank you very much!!
Yes, we would like to return the car in Toronto. I haven't found any rent a car company that allows us to do that...
We are thinking in renting the car in the Canadian side, but... how to cross the border with all the kids, the luggage... that is what really scares me!!! :)
I will check that bus company.
If anybody else have any tip, we would really appreciate it!

Are you coming back into the US after Toronto? If not, then ditch the car in Buffalo.

There are four ways to cross the border at Niagara Falls:
- Car, not an option for you because you have drop at YYZ
- Walk, not really an option for you either
- Train, Amtrak to the border and VIA Rail to Canada may be your best option, but service is limited. It runs from Buffalo's Depew station which is on the east side of town.
- Bus, buses run from both Niagara and Buffalo to Toronto directly (i.e. - you don't need to transfer)

Travel Tips for Niagara Falls

Take the boat ride!!! You...

by mhughes33

Take the boat ride!!! You really can't appreciate the power of the falls without getting drenched beneath it. when you get ready to board the boat they give you these little plastic jackets. don't think for a minute you won't need it!

I walked to Canada

by kenadams

Rainbow bridge is the border with Canada.
I walked across it and enjoyed the view.
Post 9/11 security standards make it a bit harder to enter the U.S.A.: it is suggested that you bring your passport rather than just your driver's license, or have your license and a birth certificate. The good times when you could cross the border easily if you were a U.S. citizen are gone.
And be ready to "pay toll to the U.S.A.": 50 cents.

My fondest memory of Niagara...

by Randall_Burt

My fondest memory of Niagara Falls was back in 1984. My first time at the Niagara Falls Airshow. Two Blue Angel Planes crashed over us as they were comming at each other at over 500 Miles per hour. The plane in the pictures Pilot Survived. The Pilot of the other plane was not as lucky. This plane came down near the runways in front of us. The other plane crashed on the other end of the runway. It was amazing that they didn't end up in the crowd. Usually this is a safe show. Its hasnt had a problem like that in over 17 years almost.

Rain gear, etc.

by Lady7

Make sure to bring rain gear, anytime you get near the falls, you area going to get damp. The Maid of the Mist tour boat has rain ponchos that you can use, but you end up with wet pants, shoes & socks. Bring your own stuff & stay dry, you'll thank me later. My friend Vladimir with rain poncho. Use sunscreen, even though it's further north, the sun will still cook you if it gets the chance, especially with the reflection factor of the water. Don't forget something to keep your camera dry. Even a plastic bag wrapped around everything but the lens will help if you don't have a water proof camera.

Explore History

by Yaqui

If you love history then you'll love this place. It is located in Lewiston, NY next to beautiful Lake Ontario and not far from the Niagara Falls.

Three flags are flown daily in the parade ground symbolizing the nations that have held Fort Niagara in turn.

The French established the first post here in 1679 as Fort Conti, then as Fort Denoville 1687-88, which was very short lived. Finally in 1726 the French built the permament fortification of the "French Castle". Britain gained control of the Fort Niagara in 1759 during the French and Indian Wars. They held the post throughout the American Revolution but were forced by treaty to yield it to the United States in 1796. Although, it was recaptured by the British in 1813. It was once again ceded to the U.S.A. in 1815 at the end of the war.

All of the main buildings are wonderfully maintained. Their's even a authentic British Infantryman with his trusty "Brown Bess" that gives demonstrations and teaches the history of this wonderful treasure.
