NFTA-Metro is undertaking a study to comprehensively evaluate its Paratransit Access Line (PAL) service. Click here for more information on the study.
Several Metro bus schedules will change on Sunday, March 3. Previews available here.
Starting January 7, Metro Rail will be Single Tracking underground between University and Amherst Stations. Riders should board the inbound side of the platform. Look for signs with directions.
Aboveground Single Tracking will be in place starting at 9pm between Fountian Plaza and Canalside Stations. Look for signs at stops to help with boarding.
Rail schedules can be found here.
Routes 11 and 25 are unreliable
The 11 and 25 often run back to back making it so if you missed one, you missed both
11 - There is no crosswalk near Colvin & Colvin Ext., deeming the stop unsafe
25 - Buses are crowded after 3:30PM and request for service past Main & Niagara on weekends
Service Planning looked at on-time performance and found that route 25 outbound trips typically arrive later than usual towards the end of their trips. Scheduling will investigate adjusting schedules if necessary. Routes 25 and 11 generally maintain an on-time performance of 85%.
Scheduling adjusted the run time on the 11 to stagger the 2 lines and increase frequency along Delaware.
11 - The stop has been moved around the corner at Colvin & Colvin Extension. Outbound buses will now stop after the right turn, in an effort to get riders closer to the crosswalk.
25 - Service Planning will add frequency and extend weekend routes as driver availability permits.
Beginning Monday, April 3 inbound 40-Grand Island, and 60-Niagara Falls Express buses will reroute using the I-190, due to construction on the entrance ramp to the South Grand Island Bridge. Details here.
Effective Monday, January 8th until further notice, Marine Drive between Main and Commercial will be closed.
