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.

Warning: This Post Contains Technical Documents!


As a follow up to our post about the recommended alternatives moving into the 3rd and final tier of the analysis here are two documents that informed the recommendation:

Tier 2 Screening Results


Tech Memo Revising the Recommendation

  1. after looking over all the documents from tier 3 I've come to the conclusion that the best way is to tunnel under N.F. blvd, the reason being is that the current traffic on the blvd especially near the I-290 is horrible and adding any type of transit at grade would only complicate things even more. I don't like the route going up bailey, I don't think that it would suit that area not to mention the impact and inconvenience for the neighbors in that area. going under the blvd wouldn't in my opinion disrupt traffic as much not to mention that traffic could still flow in both directions while work is going on to build the tunnels. cut and cover would be the most cost effective if tunnels are selected. Also here is some food for thought... what is going to happen to the bus routes that feed this new extension? I hope that a route is planned for N. French rd, the reason being is because every day during rush hour, it's wall to wall cars in both directions morning and evening. I hope that this project can implemented much quicker than anticipated. My thought is that if things would have been started back in 2001, we would have a system already in place to accommodate this surge in downtown activity. Something else that might increase ridership....an express train making selected stops including crosspoint, UB North, UB south, the medical campus, and then into downtown. that would attract more riders. Just food for thought....I'd like to see this project be done in 4 yrs instead of 5-7yrs. I also think the construction company should be fined every month 1million dollars it goes over the budget and allotted time frame, and the opposite should be true as well, they should get a bonus for finishing the project on time and under budget. Please make it very clear that we need a system that provides transportation needs to everyone not just a select few....the next study after this should be to the airport corridor...that would be a huge money maker....and it would bring people in to the city rather than allowing them to stay out of the city....I just hope and pray that the nfta can act quick, responsibly, and with the public interest in mind, not just "what is good for the agency." I'd rather pay $6 for a day pass if it ment that I could get downtown within a reasonable amount of time. I hope this doesn't fall on deaf ears....
