Public meeting held on Metro Rail development

BUFFALO, N.Y -- Expansion of Buffalo's Metro Rail was the focus of a public meeting at UB's South Campus Wednesday night. 

It's the second of three meetings being held by the Greater Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council.

Along with a proposal to extend the metro rail to the Northtowns, the council is looking for development options near some existing stations. 

"We're talking about the corridor we're in right here at South Campus," said Hal Morse, Executive Director of the Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council, at the meeting Wednesday. "We have some corridor to the right, corridor to the left, so we're looking at what would be an appropriate kind of development and where would that best be situated to make this a success."

The council says transit-oriented development could generate nearly two billion dollars along the metro rail corridor.
