Delavan/Canisius College (formerly Delavan-College station until 2003[3]) is a Metro Rail station in Buffalo, New York.

Delavan-Canisius College Station is located at the north-east corner of Main Street and East Delavan Avenue, in Buffalo.

The deepest station in the system is known as having one of the longest escalators set up in country.

Delavan-Canisius College station was also bored through rock, and remnants of Cold Spring (a small spring) are visible through occasional water running on the track bed floors.

Artwork

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 seventy proposals submitted, twenty-two were chosen and are currently positioned inside and outside of the eight underground stations.[4]

Delavan-Canisius College Station is home of three pieces of work, from Sam Gilliam (Washington, DC), Carson Waterman (Seneca-Iroquois National Museum), and George Woodman (New York City and Boulder, CO).
