BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Leaders in Buffalo’s transportation industry are looking for ways to improve how you get around the city.
If you don’t have a car and live in Buffalo, transportation officials say it can be challenging to get around. Now the Greater Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council is bringing groups together to find better ways to get people around in cheap and efficient ways.
The partners behind this initiative are the NFTA, Go Bike Buffalo, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership and the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
These transportation groups are calling it a consortium of sorts. They’re now asking people who work in the city to fill out a survey and help them identify the best sustainable alternatives.
Leaders say as the city continues to bounce back there will be more cars flooding into downtown. They say it’s all part of the resurgence of Buffalo.
Kelly Dixon, Senior Transportation Planner with the Greater Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council said, “This renaissance in Buffalo, we want to keep that momentum going. All of us involved in this initiative want to continue to make Buffalo a great place to live work and play. And your ability to get around certainly impacts that.”
