I live in Washington DC and would like to go to Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. I am planning to buy a flight ticket and book a taxi, which can take me from BUF Airport to Niagara Falls on the Falls view. I looked at taxi companies but they all seem expensive.

Is there any other way to get a cheaper price than a taxi?

    Take a bus, should be much cheaper.. – Nean Der Thal Nov 26 '14 at 18:58
  • I doubt very much a taxi will take you across the border. To the border perhaps, but not across it. – Kate Gregory Nov 26 '14 at 19:30
  • @KateGregory Motor vehicles cross borders all the time. The cab website says they can transport someone in Canada. – mkennedy Nov 26 '14 at 20:14
  • Fyi I live in DC and would just drive the whole way to Niagara. It's maybe 7 hours each way, and you have your car. Flying into Buf will be pretty expensive. – Affable Geek Feb 9 '15 at 3:29

It looks like there are some options in terms of ground transportation from Buffalo Airport, going to Niagara Falls on either the American or Canadian side:

  • taxis and shuttles like the company you found all seem to have fares around USD75 to Amaerican side, USD80-85 to Canadian side. Some shuttle seems to be a bit cheaper, priced USD50 to the American side and USD65 to the Canadian side, with less flexibility in the times and probably drop-off places.
  • Buses like Megabus/Coach Canada have coaches going from Buffalo airport to Canadian-side Niagara Falls. The trip costs USD3 but it is happening only twice a day.
  • Public transit options are available too, as @MeNoTalk suggested. Take either the 24 or 204 (express) from the airport to Buffalo downtown and then take the 40 or 60 (express) to Niagara Falls (US). A one-way ticket costs USD2, a day pass USD5. It does not go to the Canadian side, but I suppose you can take a cab or even walk (to be verified).
