From the Lockport Journal:
Alice Putnam and her two lady friends from Niagara Falls just wanted to have lunch in Lewiston. And then ride up to Old Fort Niagara to visit Alice’s daughter who works in the gift shop there.
Joyce and Bill Price had walked from Lewiston to Youngstown with their daughter, Rachael, her boyfriend, Chaz Martenstein, and Millie, their baby granddaughter. The family caught the free shuttle in Youngstown and rode it home. Then they planned to have pizza for lunch without worrying about the calories after their six-mile walk.
An Ohio family found the Discover Niagara Shuttle an easy way to get to Old Fort Niagara so their kids could see the fort. “My birthday is coming up,” said Erin Martin of Hopewell, Ohio, traveling with her husband Lee and their two children, Emma, 13, and Charley, 12. “This is my present,” she said of her family’s vacation to the region.
From the Niagara Falls Reporter:
Though the tourist season is still underway, the “Back to School” noises are echoing ever louder, heralding the approaching end of summer’s activities. One of the players in the tourism game is the Discover Niagara Shuttle, which will see its second season close, with lingering thoughts of whether it will see a third.
Sara Capen, Executive Director of the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area and project manager responsible for the Discover Niagara Shuttle, remains optimistic, and hopeful.
From the Niagara Gazette:
Support from Niagara Falls could keep the Discover Niagara Shuttle service free to riders.
In coming weeks, city lawmakers will consider giving up to $100,000 to the Discover Niagara Shuttle, which during the 2016 tourist season ferried 33,000 visitors and locals from Youngstown to Niagara Falls.
It was free for riders last summer, subsidized entirely by public sector partnerships, and will require another $200,000 to support its second year.
