Draft Environmental Impact Statement

The Niagara Frontier Transit Metro System, Inc. (Metro) has prepared this Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) to identify potential environmental effects that would result from the Proposed Action, evaluate reasonable alternatives to avoid or minimize impacts, and - to the extent that adverse impacts are identified - avoid or otherwise mitigate those impacts to the maximum extent practicable, consistent with social, economic, environmental, and other considerations.

The public comment period for the Draft EIS is now closed. The NFTA will consider the comments that have been received during the public comment period from the public, agencies, and stakeholders, as well as the analysis presented in the Draft EIS to prepare a Final EIS.
