Metro Rail Development Mission

The first Metro Rail Extension in its 30-plus years, and a fresh development opportunity for Buffalo, are building steam. The NFTA has applied for a $16.3 million federal grant through the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery program to move the DL&W Station project forward. It is fueled by unanimous support from the region’s federal delegation.

The DL&W rail terminal was built in 1917 to serve passenger and freight rail, as well as ships and barges. It sits at the edge of Canalside, overlooking the Buffalo River, and has been the home of Metro Rail since the 80s. This new project will open the 150,000 square foot facility up to the public, creating a whole new area for private sector investment.
