Single Tracking

What you need to know:

  • NFTA Metro is running the single tracking schedule through October 2021.
  • At underground stations, board at your usual inbound or outbound platform.
  • At Fountain Plaza station, riders will need to transfer to the other track for a rail shuttle that serves Fountain Plaza, Evans Bank Station @ Lafayette Square, Church Station, Merchants Insurance @ Seneca Station, and Erie Canal Harbor station.
  • Exceptions: Service will end at Seneca Station on . . .

    Sunday 10/24/21

    Saturday 10/30/21

  • Note: Metro Rail’s aboveground shuttle will switch sides on Sunday, October 24. Above ground service will run on Track 2 (the track usually used for outbound service towards University Station). Transfer still required at Fountain Plaza Station for service to University Station.  

The big picture:

  • From July through October, 2021, you can expect to see construction on the tracks between Fountain Plaza Station and Erie Canal Harbor Station.
  • This is part of the City of Buffalo’s Lower Main Street project.
  • We apologize for any inconvenience that this construction may cause to riders
  • As always, you can contact us at or (716) 855-7211.
