Description:

The proposed Buffalo-Amherst-Tonawanda Corridor Transit Expansion Project is a proposed approximately seven-mile expansion of high-quality transit service to Buffalo, New York to Tonawanda and Amherst, New York.  The alternatives being considered include a light rail transit extension, a bus rapid transit system, and the no-build alternative.  Both build alternatives would follow essentially the same alignment and would be primarily at-grade. Ten stations, two with park & ride facilities and an overnight storage and light maintenance facility are proposed for both build alternatives.
