This feature class depicts the location of the Port Robinson Ferry. This is a ferry that will take bikes and pedestrians across the Welland Canal. The ferry, which crosses the canal in Port Robinson, typically begins its free service when the shipping season starts in early April. The service was put in place in 1976 after the Port Robinson Rd. bridge was destroyed by an American ore carrier that collided with it.
When the canal is closed during the winter, a shuttle bus moves people from one side of Port Robinson to the other. This feature class was created for use in small scale mapping. The extent of this feature class corresponds to Thorold.
