VIA Rail, together with Amtrak, connects Niagara Falls, ON and Toronto, as well as New York City. www.viarail.ca The rail border crossing can be lengthy, so travellers from New York State may be better off disembarking at the Amtrak depot in Buffalo and connecting by bus from the nearby intercity bus terminal. There is an Amtrak station in Niagara Falls, NY but NFTA bus connections are unconfirmed.
