    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.
