BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The NFTA is making another temporary change to metro service as work continues to return cars to Main Street in downtown Buffalo.
Starting Tuesday, single-track service will switch sides. All inbound and outbound passengers in the free, above-ground section will board and exit rail cars using the inbound stations on the west side of Main Street.
Passengers using a wheelchair or another mobility device must board the first inbound car underground if they intend to exit at any station above ground.
The NFTA says outbound passengers using a mobility device who board at Church Street, Lafayette Square or Fountain Plaza stations must board the last car.
C. Douglas Hartmayer, the NFTA director of public affairs, says double-track service should resume in the coming weeks.
The Cars Sharing Main Street project is working block by block to return vehicular traffic to Main Street. Traffic will share the street with metro rail cars starting in the theatre district.
