Niagara Falls inks deal with Amtrak for new Transportation Center

Dyster

NIAGARA FALLS, NY (WIVB) – Mayor Paul Dyster announced that the City of Niagara Falls was able to come to terms with Amtrak on a lease deal for space at the new Niagara Falls Transportation Center.

The new Falls station is the first new rail station to open in the state in more than a decade.

As part of the agreement, Amtrak will be leasing 29,360 square feet, or 63% of the 46,430 square foot, two-story station within the Niagara Falls Intermodal Transportation Center.

The deal  reportedly strikes a balance between maintenance and operational costs shared by the city.

The new $43 million dollar station will also house an Underground Railroad Museum and retail space.
