Tips For Staying Near Fallsview Casino

Location
This casino is a 2-minute drive or an 11-minute walk from downtown Niagara Falls. The surrounding area is a bit of a tourist trap—shopping and dining is more expensive here than elsewhere in the city—due to the casino’s location just a 5-minute walk from the Horseshoe Falls.

Getting Around
Because this casino resort is so close to downtown, it is serviced by public transit. All routes start running between 5:45 and 6:30 in the morning. The bus service for most routes ends around 11:30 pm. Niagara Region Public Transit does operate on Sundays and most holidays, but with reduced routes: only the #2, #5, #6, and #10 buses run on holidays and Sundays. The fare for a day pass is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and students. It is free for children under 5. A 10-ride card for adults is $45.

WEGO bus efficiently connects tourist attractions in Niagara. Adults can purchase a day pass for $7 and have the following day free. For children (6-12), a day pass costs $4 with the second day free, and WEGO is always free for children under 5 years. Find a location and purchase your WEGO pass in advance, as you will not be able to do so on the bus. WEGO hours are more extended than regular public transit: the first bus leaves the casino stop between 9 am and 9:30 am, depending on the route, and the last bus comes in between 12:30 am and 1 am. WEGO runs on Sundays and all holidays!

The Fallsview Casino Resort does not offer a shuttle service, however, all of the following hotels are within a 14-minute walk of the casino.
