Planning Under Way to Extend Buffalo Light Rail

WSP is working with the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) to design an extension that will nearly double the length of Buffalo’s Metro light rail system.

The NFTA-Metro light rail line was opened in the mid-1980s, connecting downtown Buffalo in the south with the South Campus of the University at Buffalo in the north.

Planning has begun for a 6.5-mile extension of the light rail line to reach the suburban town of Amherst in the Northeast.
