The undertaking of any large project requires an openness to change. The change presented by transit planners for a proposed Metro Rail extension looks like a good one, offering the possibility of cost savings, along with increased economic opportunity and better service.
Plans by the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority now call for northbound trains to exit University Station directly to Niagara Falls Boulevard as opposed to running beneath Bailey Avenue. It’s all part of the approximately 7-mile extension planned to the University at Buffalo’s North Campus and, hopefully, beyond.
