    The Crappiest Looking Railway Station

    My Solitary Bag Awaiting The Train

    I suppose that I have a very European bias here in as much as rail travel is one of our main means of getting to and from A-B. I do love travelling by train and have really enjoyed all of my Amtrak journeys, but here's me stuck in Buffalo and the train is delayed by 2 hours AND there is NO BAR on the platform - Yikes!!!!!

    And then when the train does arrive I find that the bar on the train is closed until the border crossing - double Yikes. Yikes! The guy in the ticket office was friendly enough though, showed me his hunting photos - would've much rather had a beer!!!!

    Buffalo Niagara International Airport

    Visitors to Niagara Falls should use the Buffalo IA as their destination.
    It is also the alternative airport to arrive at when planning to visit Southern Ontario, Canada. Flying in and out of BUF is much cheaper than YYZ when flying around the US.
    And Toronto is only 1½ hour drive away.

    NFTA - dot com!!!

    This is definitely part of Buffalo trying to redifine itself, putting together modern transport links. Within downtown the Metro is free, though it doesn't go very far until it reaches the underground part.

    That said: an NFTA all day pass which will take you out to Niagara Falls and back and is still valid for the rest of your day is a steal at $3.50.

    MetroRail. This is a free, above ground train that runs on the Main Street area. Great way to get from HSBC Arena or Dunn Tire Park back to the bars. Trains run a average of every 5-20 minutes. Once the train goes underground, you are on the pay end of it. The train runs out to the South Campus of UB.

    Buffalo-Niagara Int'l Airport

    The Airport is off Genesee Street on the East side of the city. The planes will be landing and taking off around yu as you drive on the I-90. Buffalo renovated this airport just a couple of years ago and did a fantastic job with it. We recently flew to Florida and could not beleive how nice the airport looked. Plenty of parking in and around the airport.
    All the major US airlines are serviced through here.

    Easy to get around.

    Driving around Buffalo is a breaze. The highways are all over the place and you can get around easily. Look out during the winter when the weather can get nasty and the roads get heavily snowed upon. Generally, drving in Buffalo is good.

    If you are from another country the easiest way to get to Buffalo is by Air. The Buffalo/Niagara International Aiport is BRAND NEW and gleaming! It is the gateway to the Niagara Frontier and so it showcases the area extremely well. If driving, the area is host to several interstates. If arriving by rail, the rail station is served by Amtrak.
    Buffalo actually has superb infrastructure. The city's roads were designed to handle the traffic for 2 million people. But since there is a little over a million,the roads aren't overly busy. Interstate 90 runs east to west and I-190 is a toll road that takes you downtown and to Canada. RT 33 is a 4-lane and takes you to the airport and downtown and I-290(Youngman Expy) circles the city to the north. Rt 198 or the Scajaquada Expy runs north and extends like and arc from Rt 33 and hooks up with I-190 just north of Peace Bridge. The I-990 leads to UB. The roads(like most of the state) are in excellent condition. Traffic flows smoothly, so you will have no troubles.

    Fly into Buffalo Niagara International Airport

    www.NFTA.com
    Take a cab, or the City Bus, or the subway/light rail.
    Rail is Free while Downtown, but you have to pay when if you are going underground.
