Niagara Falls, New York, has a state-of-the-art new $43 million intermodal station that was built in part to serve Amtrak, yet the trains continue to call elsewhere.
Amtrak continues to work with the City of Niagara Falls toward execution of a lease agreement allowing us to occupy space in the new train station,” said Amtrak spokesman Craig Schulz. “We are working through the remaining issues which we are optimistic can be resolved. We look forward to moving Amtrak operations into the new building and inaugurating service to the new station.”
Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster has told local media that “the ball is now in Amtrak’s court.”
Work on the new station was completed this summer and an open house was held at which Amtrak showed off a display train.
In the meantime, Amtrak continues to use a facility in Niagara Falls near Lockport Road.
