Metro Bus Game Day Express Service Returns

After a twelve-year absence, Metro Bus is back to serving Buffalo Bills home games.

The service will cost five dollars each way and individuals will pay their fare upon boarding the bus. There will be various express bus routes with planned pick-up points. They include the main downtown Buffalo bus terminal on Ellicott Street, the transit hub in the Black Rock - Riverside neighborhood, the University Station park, and ride, Thruway Mall in Cheektowaga, Athol Springs in Hamburg, along with the Eastern Hills Mall in the Amherst - Clarence area and McKinley Mall in Hamburg.

It is the hope that fans will use this park and ride option to help alleviate some of the traffic at the stadium. That may especially be important as actual construction begins on the new stadium with its footprint expected to use some current parking lots. Then after the new stadium opens in 2026, there could be some parking capacity issues until the old stadium is demolished to potentially create new lots.
