Summer-Best is a Buffalo Metro Rail station located at the junction of Summer, Best and Main Streets.

Bus routes serving Summer-Best Station[edit]

Summer-Best Station is one of only four stations that does not offer an off-road bus loop, requiring passengers to board/debark using curbside stops (the other three being Amherst Street, Humboldt-Hospital and Allen/Medical Campus). Route 8 buses heading toward Marine Drive or University Station and route 22 buses heading toward Thruway Mall do not board at the curb on the same side as the station, which is served by two bus routes:

  • 8 Main
  • 22 Porter-Best


In 1979, an art selection committee was created, composed of NFTA commissioners and Buffalo area art experts, that would judge the artwork that would be displayed in and on the properties of eight stations on the Metro Rail line. Out of the 70 proposals submitted, 22 were chosen and are currently positioned inside and outside of the eight underground stations. Summer-Best Station is home of two pieces of work, from George Sugarman (New York City) and John Pfahl (Buffalo).
