Toronto - Niagara Falls transportation


we're planning to visit Toronto then to Niagara Falls in July 2014.

Any suggestion on transportation?

We're not planning on renting car, is Public Transport in Toronto dependable?

Is it easy to go around Toronto on public transport?

Is there any bus/tour shuttle going from Toronto - Niagara Falls?

Please help....

Thanks a million....

Both these questions are answered in the "Top Questions about Toronto" sidebar on the right side of this page. Yes, public transit in Toronto is extensive and works well for getting around the city, see ttc.ca for routes and fares. There are a few options for getting to Niagara Falls by public transportation as explained under "How to get from Toronto to Niagara Falls?".

In terms of conducted tours from Toronto, there are many. However the one most recommended, with good reviews is Chariots of Fire.

I wish I had known this before just going to Niagara Falls. Would have spent 2 days in Toronto and 2 days at the Falls and just flown into Toronto instead of Buffalo.

Hi julindo;

FYI...Niagara Falls is approx. 80 miles / 130 km, an average drive of 1½ hours southwest of Toronto, without traffic delays.

Best Regards

julindo............you don't specify how many in your party, but if you have 4-5 persons, then a one day car rental could be more convenient/cost effective than taking a tour or rail service to Niagara.....just something to consider................. and also to note - July 1st is a national holiday in Canada, and July 4th a national holiday in the U.S...........if travelling to NF that time period, it will be extra busy, as NF, Ontario borders the U.S.....

Hi julindo,

Toronto is a great city to visit in the summer ... you will find that there is so much to do. And you can get around the city quite easily without a car. Here is a link to Toronto's transportation website where you with find everything you will need to know about getting around the city and info about passes and so forth.


Niagara Falls is also easy to get to from Toronto. You can even go to and from in the same day if that suits you. You can get to NF via the train, bus, or an organized tour and I believe even the go train runs in the summer months.
