Workshop on plans for Metro Bus Niagara Street corridor planned

Plans for enhancements to the Metro Bus Niagara Street corridor will be reviewed at a public informational meeting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Riverside Institute of Technology, 51 Ontario St.

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority will brief the public on a plan for four new bus shelters, relocating five existing shelters, and is seeking public input on a new “neighborhood compact transit center” for the route.

“The four new bus shelters will include amenities such as lighting, ‘next bus’ informational signs, advertisements and wireless network analysis,” said NFTA Executive Director Kimberley A. Minkel. “We look forward to engaging the community as we collaborate to develop a ‘high-quality transit corridor’ along Niagara Street.”

The $4.5 million project, funded by a federal Transit Administration grant, is scheduled to begin in 2015.
