    “This is a very important moment for Niagara Region,” Nicholson said. “It required a lot of work and dedication over the years. It is an important component in what we’re doing to find better ways of moving people around and extending their stay.

    “This will do just that.”

    Both the federal and provincial governments contributed $25 million to the project and Nicholson called it money well spent.

    “It increases the availability for all the attractions to all people,” he said.

    And away… WEGO!

    From Niagara This Week:

    The replacement for the aging Peoplemover transit system in Niagara Falls now has a name — WEGO.

    The brand is meant to be a fun pairing of the words “we,” meaning friendship and social activity with “go” to emphasize adventure and exploration. The name was unveiled Thursday in a joint statement by the federal and provincial governments, the Niagara Parks Commission and the City of Niagara Falls. The name was chosen, the statement read, because it easily distinguishes the new Niagara Falls Visitor Transportation System from the conventional municipal system.

    “WEGO is another step forward for improving bus service in Niagara Falls,” said Niagara Falls MP and Minister of Justice Rob Nicholson, speaking on behalf of the federal government. “The new system will be a great benefit to the area; it will support the local economy, provide residents and visitors with greater transit options, reduce traffic congestion and support better air quality.”
