Fort Erie Transit transitioned from a fixed-route bus system to an On-Demand system in October 2021 and usage is increasing on a daily basis as people hear about it and experience how easy it is to take. The vans are very comfortable and equipped with a plexiglass shield behind the driver to protect everyone. Riders are required to wear masks. Service is provided within the Town from 6 am to 9 pm, Monday to Saturday, excluding statutory holidays.
Overall, it is a genius idea as it is convenient, more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly than the previous system. Use it to get around Town easily and quickly. Why not give On-Demand a try and come out and visit the Lions Douglas Heights Senior Centre?
