    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    A provider has been chosen to supply new buses to the revitalized peoplemover system for the City.

    Niagara Falls Transit and The Niagara Parks Commission jointly placed an order valued at $18 million for a mix of clean-diesel 40-foot Nova LFS and 62-foot articulated LFX buses from the St. Eustache, Que., company.

    “Staff at both organizations are impressed with the contemporary design of Nova buses,” Niagara Falls Transit General Manager, Dave Stuart said. “We feel the interior amenities are attractive and well thought out for customers requiring greater levels of accessibility.”

    The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC), meanwhile, has worked with Niagara Falls Transit and The City of Niagara Falls on the establishment of an enhanced Visitor Transportation System for the Park and City that will result in the purchase of new clean-diesel vehicles to replace NPC’s aging and inaccessible peoplemover buses.

    From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo:

    Niagara Falls is Western New York and southern Ontario’s natural tourist attraction. But the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario has its mind set on two tourists in particular; England’s future King and Queen, Prince William and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton. After their spring wedding they’re planning a trip to Canada.

    “We couldn’t think of a more natural place than the honeymoon capital of the world to make a trip,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati.
