The USA and Northern edge of Canada are connected by the bridge over the Niagara river.
How to cross the bridge between Canada and the USA in Toronto
At the end of XIX century the USA started advertising Niagara Falls rest – Niagara wedding tours, the waterfall excursions and cruises down the river.

To get to Canada shore suspension bridge was used, and since 1941 – steel arched Niagara Falls Bridge that is also called Rainbow Bridge as quite often rainbow can be seen over it.

How to do?

1. 1. You can get to Niagara Falls city by bus that departs from Toronto Coach Terminal central bus station for $13-15. Look up the timetable here. The way takes 2,5 hours. From Niagara Falls bus station go to bus stop at Bridge St & Erie Street intersection – take bus №104 (fare around the city is $3-6) and go to Victoria Av & Bender Street intersection. The Rainbow Bridge Port of Entry is three blocks down Bender Street.

2. To get up to the bridge you have to pay charge ($0.50) at the pay-gate. The tariff doesn’t differ for pedestrians and bicycle riders, but for car drivers it is seven times more expensive ($4.75). The bridge lies through the USA-Canada border – there is no any thorough security check, but they can ask about a purpose of a visit and nationality.

3. From the Rainbow Bridge you can observe all the three waterfalls – a good chance to save money on visiting all of them separately.
