The Town is putting its public transit system on hold.
The Town’s emergency control group, which includes Lord Mayor Betty Disero, CAO Sheldon Randall and Fire Chief Nick Ruller, made the decision out of concern for the health and safety of maintaining operations, and also because of the recent decline in ridership.
Buses will stop rolling Thursday, April 9.
As the Town’s state of emergency continues, this suspension of service is another way to protect Niagara-on-the-Lake from the spread of COVID-19, a Town announcement said Monday.
Residents requiring assistance with grocery delivery and shopping support are encouraged to visit the Town’s website to take advantage of the community assistance program.
All Town updates on COVID-19, including how to access volunteer support, are available at notl.com/COVID-19, or call 905-468-3266.
Phones are being answered between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, and online service requests remain available at notl.org/content/service-request.
