I don’t understand why they don’t take advantage of the Amtrak overflow low across Liberty St. from the Amtrak Station on Erie Blvd to put a bus stop for intercity busses. They can add a shelter and allow people to also use the waiting area at the train station. Many cities have intermodal transportation centers for trains and busses. This would make downtown more of a hub for regional and intercity travel.

Traffic flow. Much easier for the bus to pull off 890 and circle back around in its current location. Busses would have a hard time maneuvering through either the bus station or overflow lot, and curbside pickup wouldn’t be possible on Erie. But I agree that centralizing transit would be a huge plus if it were more logistically feasible.
