Fort Erie will be switching to On-Demand Transit (ODT) service from a fixed-route service, starting Monday (October 4).
Kelly Walsh, Fort Erie’s Director of Infrastructure Services, said, “Switching from fixed-route service to on-demand service was done to provide residents a more flexible and convenient way to get to and from their destinations within Town boundaries.”
“This new service will better serve the transportation needs of all residents and visitors. Once people try it, I’m convinced it will become second nature,” said Walsh.
This new service gives riders the ability to request a ride through a new On-Demand Transit app (available for download at the Apple Store and Google Play), by boarding an ODT vehicle or by calling 1-833-BUS-LINE (287-5463).
The ODT service vehicle will pick up the rider and drop them off within the Fort Erie boundaries for $3 per ride. Riders may have to walk to the closest intersection or street crossing in order to board the vehicle.
