Toronto to St. Catharines in 30 minutes! Hoverlink Ontario announced its plans to launch a North America's first rapid transit hovercraft service across Lake Ontario next summer.
North America’s first-ever rapid transit hovercraft set to launch in summer 2023 will connect Toronto and the Niagara Region in 30 minutes. Hoverlink has approvals in place to land its hovercrafts at Ontario Place in Toronto and Port Weller in St. Catharines, travelling across Lake Ontario 365 days a year, with up to 48 lake crossings per day.
Access to safe, affordable and environmentally friendly transportation creates more opportunities for businesses, residents and visitors. St. Catharines is already easily accessed by GO Transit, daily bus service and seasonal train service between Niagara and the Greater Toronto Area. Hoverlink's rapid transit plans and provincial plans expanding daily GO Service to Niagara help make St. Catharines even more desirable location.

Described as "riding on air," each craft holds up to 180 passengers in a comfortable, climate-controlled cabin. With the capacity to serve more than three million passengers per year, the service will provide a direct link between two of Ontario's most significant economic and tourist regions. It will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by removing thousands of vehicles from the QEW every day.
