Station Improvement:
A new intermodal station opened in October 2017, the result of nearly 15 years of visioning and planning by stakeholders including the city, residents, New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), Amtrak, CSXT, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority.
