Depends on where you want to go and where you are staying.

Public bus service does exist but is limited. NFTA.com has schedules.

Taxis are prevalent. Blue United Taxi is a reliable cab service.

If you plan on staying near the State Park/downtown for 2 days, then you can take a taxi to your downtown hotel and pretty much walk everywhere from there.

As has been pointed out in other posts, you'll need a Canadian visa to visit the Canadian side, which most people think has the better views.

It's also a very long train ride from New York City to Niagara Falls. Just because they're in the same state doesn't mean that they're at all close to one another.

Flying is usually the best way to get from NYC to Niagara Falls. Jet Blue flies from JFK to Buffalo, NY for about $65 each way and takes 1 hr 20 min. Compare with a $50 train ride that takes ~10 hours.
