Amtrak yesterday began revenue service at a new $43 million station in Niagara Falls, N.Y.

The city of Niagara Falls built the 40,000-square-foot station, which was completed over the summer. Amtrak then signed a lease to occupy space in the building, said Amtrak spokesman Craig Schulz.

The station includes a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol office to make it easier for riders to travel between the United States and Canada, Schulz added.

Niagara Falls city officials are looking for a tenant to occupy 4,000 square feet of retail space in the station, The Buffalo News reported.
