The Light Rail of Buffalo, New York 2018

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Is this a subway? It has a few characteristics of a subway.
Buffalo is the 2nd largest city in the State of New York and only two and half hours drive from Toronto, Canada. The population of 256,000 has been declining over the last few decades; however, there are signs that it may turn around soon.
Buffalo Metro Rail is the public transit rail system in Buffalo, New York, United States; it is operated by the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA). The system consists of a single, 6.4-mile (10.3 km) long light rail line that runs for most of the length of Main Street (New York State Route 5) in the City of Buffalo, from KeyBank Center in Downtown Buffalo to the south campus of the University at Buffalo in the northeast corner of the city. Daily ridership is 18,500 on a weekday. The first section of the line opened in October 1984; the current system was completed in November 1986.
Metro Rail is a light rail transit (LRT) system as characterized by the American Public Transportation Association although it shares many characteristics with "heavy rail" metro systems and could be considered a "light metro." 80% of its track (5.2 miles (8.4 km)) is an underground subway with high-level platforms. This section has eight stations that are spaced fairly widely apart, comparable to subway systems elsewhere. This section is cut-and-cover from Allen/Medical Campus to Utica, then deep-bored from Delavan/Canisius College to University. ~WIKIPEDIA
