We are going to be arriving at the Amtrak Depew station. We won't be renting a car, so would like information on Hotels near the station, or shuttles to Hotels closer to downtown. Also would like to know about bus or tram availability from Depew station to Niagara, and downtown Buffalo. I know that there is probably info. on this site, but would still appreciate any that might be provided. Thanks

Hi sandiaman, the Depew Amtrak station is in the middle of nowhere, but it is close to the airport. So there are quite a few options for airport hotels. There is at least one hotel in downtown Buffalo (maybe more) with shuttles that might pick you up from the airport or train station. You might try this one: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g60974-d99510-R…

I don't know of any transportation except taxis from the train station, so you'd have to take a short taxi ride to the airport. There are buses from the airport to downtown and to Niagara Falls via NFTA. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for routes #204 and #210: http://routes.nfta.com/

methodluv - Since the poster is coming from New Mexico they will most likely be coming through Chicago, not NYC. The Lake Shore Limited does not go to the Exchange St. station.
