The Niagara Falls DE, Fallsdude, posted this ealier in the year.
The bus terminal is about 2 miles / 3km from the Falls. In the summer, it could be an interesting walk along the Niagara gorge.
The bus terminal is also the city transit hub where you can get a local bus. City buses do not go into Queen Victoria Park near the Falls, but will take you to the top of Clifton Hill, from where you can then walk to the Falls. Any of bus routes 2,3,4 or 5 would work.
I'm using info a Jan 2009 response from FallsDude for this.
The bus terminal is about 3km from the Falls... so you could walk. If so, go along the gorge (next to the river).
The Greyhound bus terminal is also the city transit hub - so you can get a local bus there. City buses will take you to the top of Clifton Hill. In particular, routes 2,3,4 or 5.

Oh...sure...now Fallsdude answers ;-)
You can not walk it if you have any luggage in my opinion unless you are just in your early 20's. Niagara buses aren't the nicest around, lol but it did get me into walking distance to my hotel for just $3.50..believe a cab would be $12 to $15.
If you have a pick between Greyhound and Coach Canada buses take Coach Canada, nicer buses by far..both will take you safety thou.
Just so you know smokin', Niagara Falls Transit is in the process of replacing their whole fleet, so most of the buses on the road now are brand new.
Well not the ones I seen this week and last week, they were bad, sorry..only worst buses I have seen were in Mexico--those pour smoke out..Niagara buses did not smoke but were old..I seen London's buses, far nicer.
I took the Go Train 2 weekends in a row to the Falls and used the shuttle bus both times. I also really got around Toronto-even used North York Transit buses along with TTC buses. I took a 12 day holiday--June 27th to July 8th and used Greyhound going up to Toronto and back.
No Niagara public transportation I wasn't too pleased with. Same with the People Mover, same hours as years past but fewer P.M. and longer wait times. One evening around 10pm I waited a half an hour by the Horseshoe Falls for that P.M. bus, it was cold with the mist of the Falls--all the benches were wet too. The taxi cabs like it thou, they keep driving around hoping somebody would hop in (if I knew it be a hal hour wait I would have). Between like 11am and 7pm the waits were much shorter but I recall years past it was always a short wait--not this year and I was in town for 4th of July weekend, prime tourist season.
We do have 4 or so brand new state of the art large buses. Yes, there are still some old ones on our streets and some "compact" buses on some routes, but in this economy; we're doing our best.
The Parks Commission has it's own set of problems with the downturn and isn't about to replace those old People Movers with new units.
Therefore; fewer on the parkway.
Hi, I visited for the day a few weeks ago, without luggage. Someone on here had the helpful tip of walking to the White Water Walk attraction from the Greyhound bus depot (literally a 3 minute walk) and then buying the day pass for the People Mover bus which follows a set loop all day long and comes approx every 10 mins or so. This was brilliant advice - probably more suited to people doing a day trip like me, as I needed to get back there at the end of the day for my bus. The ticket did not cost much at all (I think under $10???) and it was all very easy and I felt safe on my own. For a tourist and first time visit, the People Mover is dead easy!
