What is the best way to get to Niagara falls

Hi, all!

I’m going to take trip from New York to Buffalo by plane.

I’ll arrive at Buffalo Niagara Airport at 10:00AM and the departure is at 8.00 PM.

I’d like to visit Niagara Falls. Please advise me what is the best way to get there.

I don’t want to rent a car)

Thank’s a lot.

Andrey

If you want to do a formal tour, there are a few companies that take passengers from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, listed here:

buffaloairport.com/GroundTransportation.asp…

If you want to do it on your own, it's a little more complicated but is certainly possible.

Will you have luggage to carry along? To the best of my knowledge, there are no storage lockers at the airport, so that might present a problem...

Hi! Thanks for answer.

I won't take a lot of luggage ,so it's not a problem.

You are right, I want to do it on my own. If it's possible I'd like to take a taxi.

I hope it's not really expensive. Maybe you know what an estimated cost of the taxi to Niagara falls is?

And one more thing - is it possible to catch a taxi from Niagara falls to Buffalo airport and how do you think at what time I should come back to the airport, if i departure at 8:00 pm ?

Many thanks)

Dear friends,

We are also planning to do a similar trip, late in October, when the day will be shorter..

If we reach Buffalo by 11 AM, is it possible to join Maid of Mist, caves of Wind, the adventure movie and finish by the evening illumination.. Since we have some baggage, can we hire a taxi for the whole program and back to airport.by 8 pm..

No, i dont want to drive...

You can take Buffalo Niagara Bus#204 to the Greyhound Station in downtown Buffalo,then transfer to bus#40 and go to the Niagara Falls(that leg of the trip takes one hour).Going to and from Niagara Falls will take at least 2 and a half hours each way from the Buffalo Niagara Airport.The ride from Buffalo to Niagara Falls is very scenic in spots.The public bus service is economical and efficient.I love Niagara Falls,so even though it is a project,it is worth it.

Hi RSAJITH;

The #210 bus route has been discontinued.

The #60 bus route operates from downtown Buffalo to Niagara Falls. It does NOT travel to / from the airport.

Hi RSAJITH;

The 55T does not go to the Buffalo Airport.

The Buffalo Niagara Int'l Airport, (BUF) and the Niagara Falls Int'l Airport (IAG) are two different airports.

Best Regards

RSAJITH, when are you planning to go? The last day for Maid of the Mist is October 24 this year. After that, the boats are pulled out of the water for the winter.
