The Discover Niagara Shuttle is an initiative of the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area. The Niagara Falls National Heritage Area served as the catalyst engaging Niagara County partners and stakeholders in developing a comprehensive transportation network that connects visitors and residents with the natural, cultural and historic assets within the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area.
