|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||A ridesharing pilot project for communities in West Niagara.
A transportation option which uses smartphone technology and a fleet of dedicated vehicles to provide trips within the service boundaries with no fixed schedules or routes.
Does not operate on a fixed route like conventional transit services. Riders can request trips in real-time through the app or over the phone by selecting a pickup point and destination.
Riders can travel from their location to the pre-set destination selected when booking their ride. This is a flat fee service. The price will never increase based on location or service area. OnDemand riders arriving at any of the three transit hubs can transfer onto Regional or local transit to complete their trip. For example, a rider can board an OnDemand vehicle in Grimsby, transfer to a Niagara Region Transit bus at the St. Catharines Bus Terminal, and travel to the Outlet Collection at Niagara, all for just the one Regional fare.
The service offers a door-to-door service to accommodate riders with accessible needs.
