Public Transportation

Getting around the City of St. Catharines doesn't require a car. St. Catharines Transit has bus routes traversing all corners of the city, with buses running at regular intervals. Please note: some routes have limited evening and weekend service.

Inter-municipal Transit service

St. Catharines Transit also travels into the neighbouring City of Thorold. Stops at Brock University enable riders to connect to buses from Niagara Falls Transit and Welland Transit, taking travellers to their respective cities.

Niagara Region currently operates a region-wide transit system, with stops in St. Catharines, Welland, Niagara Falls, Port Colborne, Thorold and Fort Erie.

Inter- municipal Transit Working Group

The cities of St. Catharines, Welland and Niagara Falls, along with the Niagara Region are currently working together to consider transit requirements for an integrated transit system. View our Inter-municipal Transit Working Group page for details.

Intermunicipal transit is identified as a strategic priority in the City's Strategic Plan under the Economic Sustainability pillar:

  • "In partnership with the St. Catharines Transit Commission and the cities of Niagara Falls and Welland, develop a regionally-integrated transit system."

Niagara GO Train Service

Intermunicipal transit is just one initiative underway to support the expansion of daily GO train service to Niagara. For more information visit
