How to travel from Port Colborne,ON to Rochester ,NY?

Hi there!

Can anyone help me!?!

I am visiting a friend in Port Colborne,ON on

june 3+4 and leaving on the 5th. for Henrietta,NY to

visit some other friends!

Can anyone advise me how to travel?

Take a taxi from Port Colborne to Buffalo and then by bus or train from there to Rochester!?

And how much would a taxi ride cost to Buffalo?

Hope someone can help me out!

Thanks!

Maikel Figaroa from Amsterdam

Welcome!

Have you thought about renting a car? It might be alot easier as I am not sure if you could get a taxi to Port Colborne and if so it would be alot.

Beautiful area of the USA and Canada to drive and see and really not that hard to navigate

Can your Canadian friend meet you at the airport?

You could take a bus to Rochester but the bus station is downtown and then you would need a ride back out to Henrietta

This part of the country is really not know for it's easy use of public transportation.

I agree with the last poster, if it were me I'd want a car. You can check Greyhound and Trailways for bus schedules and fares, and Amtrak for trains, but times are limited and you will need taxis to and from the stations, unless someone can give you a ride. I have no idea what a taxi would cost from Port Colborne to Buffalo but I'm guessing it would not be cheap.

I'm afraid that the others are correct... you pretty much need a car around here.

Sorry.

Can your friend pick you up in Buffalo and drive you back to Henrietta?
