Linking communities and our future . . .

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority and its partners have embarked on a study of public transportation options for the corridor connecting Buffalo and Amherst. This could include an extension of Metro Rail, improvements to current bus service or something else altogether, like bus rapid transit. We do not know where the study is headed. We do know that together we can make getting around the region safer, more environmentally friendly and cost effective. So join us. The discussion starts here and now.

Everything's on the table

Join us for a review of public transportation alternatives for the corridor connecting Amherst and downtown Buffalo.

We will show you the evaluation criteria we have been using, our screening process and the results so far. After a year of public outreach and research, we have a menu of possibilities, and ways to move forward.  But we are not done.

Bus rapid transit, light rail, enhanced bus? Now is the perfect time learn, question and make your opinion known.
