The Canadian government contributed $25 million toward the construction of an advanced peoplemover system to better transport large numbers of tourists in the Niagara Falls area.
Niagara Falls' current peoplemover system, inaugurated in 1985, operates beyonds its practical capacity and has become less effective in serving the 16 million tourists who visit each year.
Peoplemover technology ranges from rubber-tired, conventional bus transit technology to light rail transit.
The region of Niagara forecasts that visits to the area will approach 40 million people per year by 2031.
Details on the technology that will be used for the advanced peoplemover system and the final route will be announced following the submission of requests for proposals.
