    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.

    From Niagara This Week:

    An Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) pre-hearing held last month in the Fort Erie council chambers attempted to set the schedule for the Canadian Motor Speedway (CMS) hearing, but the parties were unable to settle on a date and agreed to try again in a few weeks…

    According to Town solicitor Heather Salter, the parties were able to settle on two separate blocks of time for the hearing.

    The trial is now confirmed to start on June 18 and run for two weeks until June 29. If additional time is required, the trial will pick up again on Nov. 5 and run for another two weeks until Nov. 16.
