The Port Robinson Ferry, “Bridge-it”, is the only ferry service on the Welland Canal. The now accessible ferry has shuttled people across the Welland Canal since a laker collided with and destroyed the bridge to the hamlet in the 1970s.
The service provides a vital link for a growing number of cyclists and is a charming and memorable piece of Niagara’s cycling experience.
Ride the 8
The new Bridge-it Route provides cyclists with direct access between Thorold and the world-class wonder of Niagara Falls. The addition breaks the Greater Niagara Circle Route in two. North and south loops come together to form a figure 8. Learn More.
