Overview

Buffalo has witnessed the evolution of mass transportation through the decades, from the International Railway Company�s streetcars in 1902 to the formation of the Niagara Frontier Transit System (NFT) Metro in 1974. The Great Gorge Route, the world�s most famous scenic electric railway, offered passengers unparalleled views of Niagara Falls. By 1950, the NFT became known as one of the most progressive and profitable bus transportation networks in America. In 1985, following mergers between transport companies, streetcars were reinstated, bringing public transportation full circle. After over a century of innovation, Buffalo�s mass transportation has proven to be a lasting and venerated testament to the history of the region. Buffalo�s Historic Streetcars and Buses is a tribute to the people and equipment that serviced this great city for generations.
