2010-2020 Vision & Goals - Eight Ideas

2. Enhance train transportation and see Buffalo as the international destination and railroad hub for New York City, Chicago and Toronto.


a. Promote high-speed rail to connect NYC and Chicago, not just Albany to Buffalo.
This will automatically include Albany to Buffalo as well as all the major Great Lakes cities and states, including Erie, PA; Cleveland, OH; Toledo, OH; Detroit, MI; and Gary, IN. Political support for this idea should be substantial if all these cities are included with NYC and Chicago.

b. Encourage on-train customs procedures to eliminate bridge waiting time -- making the train the easiest way to connect Toronto with Buffalo and all US points east and west.
