Will there be a U-Pass for NC Students for the 2021 - 2022 Academic year?
Unfortunately, there will not be a U-Pass for Niagara College students for the 2021 - 2022 academic year. The U-Pass program was "suspended" in March 2020 and will not be returning at this time.
Will there be additional busses added to routes in the Fall 2021 semester to handle the increase in students back to campus?
Yes, many of the routes from Niagara Falls to DJP/NOTL Campus and to the Welland Campus, will have increased busses added to them during peak time. Peak times are considered 7am - 9am and 3pm - 6pm. The 40, 45, 60, 65, 70, and 75 routes will all have additional busses added during peak times. If you have an issue with a bus, route, or schedule, please click the button below.

Will I have to purchase multiple passes if I live in Niagara Falls and have to travel to Welland? If that's the case, will I have to purchase a Regional Bus Pass?
In this case, students would need to purchase a Niagara Regional Transit Pass only. If they only purchased a 2-ride or 10-ride card, they will need to request a transfer when boarding the bus which will allow them to transfer to a local service. https://niagararegion.ca/transit/fares.aspx Otherwise, they can simply show their NRT monthly pass on each bus.
Please note that Niagara-on-the-Lake does not honour NRT passes so students would require a separate pass for local services in that municipality.
What is the cost of transit tickets?
For students 18 and over:
Adult Monthly Pass (unlimited rides in Niagara Region) - $160
10 - ride tickets - $45
