Travel from Toronto Pearson Airport to Niagara Falls

Niagara District Airport offers daily scheduled service at 10 am, 1 pm and 6 pm from Toronto to Niagara-On-The-Lake. This is a great way to get to Niagara from Toronto. Those choosing this route need to arrange transportation for the short drive from Niagara-On-The-Lake to Niagara Falls, but it would save the Toronto to Niagara highway commute.
