    If you are able to fly. I would suggest flying into Buffalo International Airport. It's much smaller and you can get out of the airport quicker then Toronto International Airport. It's about a 40 minute drive to get through to Niagara Falls, Canada, from Buffalo airport.

    If you are flying into Toronto, Canada, the drive to Niagara Falls is about one hour.

    Rainbow Bridge

    Rainbow over the Rainbow Bridge

    Our first view of the Falls was from the Rainbow Bridge as we crossed from New York State in the United States into Ontario, Canada. It was really pretty impressive scenery!
    The bridge toll is $2.50 US and totally worth it for the view!

    Bus to Niagara

    by kokoryko Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Bus station

    Use the greyhound from Toronto to Niagara falls.
    If there is good weather, enjoy the sceneries along the road; I discovered there were wine orchards in Ontario! We never stop learning.
    In Niagara falss, take another bus to reach the falls.

    Coach travel from Toronto to Niagara Falls

    Coaches at Niagara Falls bus station

    If you are in Toronto, it would be a shame not to undertake a daytrip to the world famous Niagara Falls, just a short distance south of the city.

    The Falls are a mere 90 minute coach ride from Toronto. I travelled there on a coach operated by Coach Canada and the following information was correct as of February 2006:

    Coaches leave for Niagara Falls from Bay Street coach terminal in downtown Toronto.

    At the time of my visit, there were 21 coaches each day between Toronto and Niagara Falls, the first one leaving at 06:45 and the last one leaving at 23:00. You can find a full timetable on the Coach Canada website.

    Be aware that there are 3 bus stops at Niagara Falls. These are: "Niagara Falls", "Casino Niagara" and "Fallsview Casino". The Niagara Falls stop is the bus station in the town of Niagara Falls and is some distance from the Falls themselves. If you catch a coach to this stop, as I did, then you will either have to catch a local bus (Cost: 2.25 CAD; journey time 5 minutes) to Clifton Hill or you will have to walk circa 30 minutes to get there.

    Catching a coach to either of the casino stops will take you right into the heart of the Falls, but I was told that you are not allowed to take any luggage on these coaches. Unless you specify that you want to go to the casinos, you will likely end up on a coach to Niagara Falls bus station. Don't worry....the bus connections from there to the Falls are frequent and cheap.

    I paid 35.68 CAD for a special offer same day return ticket. If you wish to return on a different day, then your ticket will be more expensive. The special offer same day return tickets can only be purchased on the day that you travel, not in advance.

    Another useful website to see the road conditions is:

    How far is it?

    South Ontario


    Planning a trip, but don't know how far it is? This website can help you out :

    http://www.gov.on.ca/MBS/english/distance/index.html

    60 cities in Ontario are listed on this website and you can calculate the distance between the two places. From Toronto to Tobermory for example is 300km (186 miles).

    The calculated distances are based on each location’s city hall and are rounded to the nearest 5 kilometres.

    Road map


    Another website that I like very much is this online roadmap :

    http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/traveller/map/

    With this website you can click on a part of the map of Ontario, and get the roadmap for that area. You can zoom in very good on an area, so it makes the map easy to read. Another option is to go to the index of place-names, and search the map that way. The maps are quite large, so it might take some time to download.

    Snowmobiles


    Watch out for the snowmobiles! They have their own trails going through the countryside. But they also share the same road as you do, using the shoulder of the road. So be aware of them! They can go quite fast, and join the roads suddenly as part of their trail.

    Traffic Camera


    Of course it is nice to have visible what the roads are like, and that is also possible through this website:

    http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/traveller/compass/camera/camhome.htm

    Here you can click on a map and get the webcam of that stretch of road. This way you always have an up to date view of the road you want to travel. You can't see all the roads in Ontario though; the webcams are mainly in the Greater Toronto area.

    Courtesy Bus

    by davesut Written May 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Courtesy bus runs from Embassy/Mariot Hotels and includes stops around the falls area including the Canadian Falls, Capital Hill, Imax, Skylon Tower, Casino and a few hotels. We were given a card to get us on but no one asked us for this.

    Buses run every 1/2 hour or so and the drivers gave a good commentary

    People Mover

    by lar-n-me Updated May 21, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The People Mover is a good way to get around to the most visited/popular attractions (22 different stops total). They stop at their prearranged stops every 15-20 minutes, you're allowed to ride any people mover with your pass.
    One fee allows you to ride the whole day and runs from just above the falls to Queenston Park on the Niagara Parkway.
    They don't run the buses from November-March.
    Tickets available at stops 1,3,7,8,18 and 20 along the route. Also available at Ride Niagara.

    PEOPLE MOVER

    1 more image

    The Niagara Parks People Mover system is great, buy a day pass and you can hop on and hop off the buses all day stopping at all the tourist attractions. The drivers were really friendly and helpful and gave us some great information on the attractions
    your day pass also includes the Incline Railway, really useful if you staying at one of the falls view hotels and cant face a trek up the hill after a long days sightseeing

    day passes cost $7.50 for adults, $4.50 for children 12-5 and under 5s are free

    the People Mover does not operate during the winter months, and the times of the last bus vary during the year, check the website for details

    Salt and sand for the roads

    by sim1 Updated Jan 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Salt and sand storage


    In almost every village you'll find these strange buildings. They are for storage of sand and salt that is used in the winter months for the icy roads. There is a lot of snow in this area, so this is no luxury at all.

    Train back from Niagara

    by kentishgirl Updated Nov 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At Niagara Station

    We travelled back to Toronto a few days later and once again used the train.

    This time it was an Amtrak train because it had come from NYC.

    The station is tiny for the amount of people that it serves and there arent any platforms either!! You just walk up onto the train!
