Good news for residents of Pelham living near Welland, the transit authority will be extending a route across city boundaries. This bus is said to half a half-hour route making it easily accessible all day long, as opposed to once every other hour as the former link operated. This route will be a trial and if ridership levels are high enough it will be available as an ongoing service to the residents of Welland and Pelham. It is still unclear if students from Brock University will be able to use this new route with their UPass (See. Port Link) although I do hope that it reduces the number of student complaints about the UPass from Pelham residents. Niagara college will be the drop point for Pelham residents coming in with that bus.
Not much else in terms of news about what is going on in the Niagara Region this summer.
