NFTA plots changes for Colvin Avenue bus route

Metro Bus will alter service on its No. 11 Colvin route beginning March 6 because of clearance restrictions at the Linden Avenue railroad overpass, according to the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.

NFTA officials said compressed natural gas and hybrid buses require additional height to travel under the bridge, prompting an end to No. 11 service on Amherst Street and Colvin Avenue south of Hertel Avenue.

An informational meeting to discuss the changes will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Theatre at Nichols School, 1250 Amherst St.
