Tourists visiting Niagara Falls will soon have a new way to see the sites.

The new “Discover Niagara” shuttle service will offer transportation from Niagara Falls State Park to 14 destination sites along the 14-mile route to Old Fort Niagara, located where the Niagara River empties into Lake Ontario.

The Discover Niagara fleet of vehicles starts running on Thursday and will be free for the first year. There are two trolleys and two small buses that are equipped with bicycle racks.

Among the shuttle stops are the Niagara Falls Aquarium, Whirlpool State Park, the Niagara Falls train station, the village of Youngstown and the Niagara Power Project Power Vista.
