The new train station on Exchange Street is starting to get bricked. The former station has been torn down and the new facility is being constructed in its place. A temporary structure is serving as a station until the new $27.7 million building opens in September.
Seating capacity at the facility will increase from 20 to 40 persons, while the image of a Buffalo will also be featured at the center of the station’s Terrazzo floor. The existing station’s low-level platform will be replaced by a new train-level platform for easier boarding. Approximately 38,000 passengers use the stop annually.
A planned second phase of the project will expand the station further to accommodate intercity bus service and additional train routes, creating an intermodal transit center.
