Bus Stop Balancing is not an Act

NFTA-Metro is embarking on a new program aimed at streamlining service throughout the bus and rail system. Bus stop balancing is the process under which bus stops ( as well as stations and transit centers) are evaluated based on their proximity to schools, transfer points, medical facilities, large-use sites, and for the first time ever – each other. The fact is, many stops in Western New York are simply too close together and this slows down bus runs for everyone. By readjusting the number of stops and the distance between them, Metro hopes to make its entire system faster, more efficient and just plain better for every rider.

The balancing act starts in mid-May and will be driven by public participation. Metro’s goal is the best system for the most people, so people are going to lead the way. Look for Metro’s new initiative soon.
