New tourism buses stall
From the Niagara Falls Review:
WEGO is a no-go for July.
The new $50-million visitor transportation system that was expected to hit the roads June 29, won’t be rolling out until mid-August.
The launch of the bus system, which will replace the Niagara Parks Commission’s People Mover, is being delayed due to issues with computer-based transportation technology.
“Obviously, we’re disappointed,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati.
The buses, a mix of 40-foot traditional buses and 60-foot articulated buses, have arrived. But the smart technology equipment still needs to be installed and programmed.
