Buffalo Light Rail to be Rebuilt

A recently adopted state budget allocates $9 million to rebuild the light rail system in Buffalo, New York.

The money is in addition to regular state funding for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, which operates the 6.4-mile, 13-station light rail system known as Metro Rail.

State lawmakers representing western New York had argued that deferred maintenance has resulted in declining ridership and deteriorating on-time performance. Metro Rail opened in 1985.
