Niagara Operation Serves University Market With New Eco-Friendly Bus

Posted on December 6, 2011

ST. CATHARINES, Ontario — Niagara Classic Transport has added a 27-passenger Krystal F-550 passenger bus to its fleet and commenced service with the Brock University Student’s Union, which is paying for the service on the students’ behalf. The bus runs on a “drive clean” fueling system that uses a self-cleaning mechanism built within the exhaust system to provide a quieter and greener ride.

Niagara Classic’s partnership with Brock University, which has about 25,000 students, ensures that students will have a safe, reliable and free mode of transportation home from campus during the December exam period.

The “Drive Home” program began on Dec. 5 and will run Monday through Wednesday, ending on Dec. 19. The program operates after regular city transit bus hours to allow students to remain on campus and study.

In addition to the university work, Niagara Classic is using the bus for airport trips, high school sports teams, sightseeing and dinner transfers. Niagara Classic also has implemented several additional services to its company to offer to clients, including an “auto spa” to detail high-end vehicles and an “off-road Ultimate Wine Tour,” both of which will be covered in an article on next week’s Weekly Reporter newsletter.

Niagara Classic Transport serves the Niagara-on-the-Lake region of Ontario and runs a fleet of London cabs, buses, stretch limousines, vintage luxury vehicles and sedans. Its premium sedan of choice is the Jaguar XJL. It also loaned its double-decker bus and London “hackney” cabs to the set of a science-fiction blockbuster remake.
