Linking communities and our future . . .

We are studying public transportation in Erie and Niagara counties. Who’s riding? Where are you going? How is the current service working? Our region is growing; our transit system needs to keep pace. The best way for us to do that, is for you to tell us how.

  1. I work in Lockport, NY representing over 150 Elderly and disabled people. One of the gaps in transportation is getting to the Social Security office on NF BLVD. To get there one would have to transfer from Rural Niagara to the 55. Can NFTA coordinate with Rural Niagara and put out a flyer of the schedule. The Social Security office in Niagara Falls is the only office for Niagara County residents.

  2. Has the NFTA thought about discussing with Amtrak/CSX to open a commuter rail line between the Falls and Buffalo.

    3 stations already exist, but its currently $16 from Niagara Falls to Buffalo via Amtrak.

    Other opportunities include connecting the NFTA Niagara Falls Airport, the City of North Tonawanda, the large industrial parks in Tonawanda, Rich Products and Larkinville.

    Great opportunity to boost tourism between cities. Have people visiting the easy access to Buffalo museums and sites as well as give people staying downtown easy access to the Falls.

  3. The meeting at the central library should have been scheduled to accommodate people who work until 5 p.m. My sister couldn't change her schedule to get to the meeting at the Galleria - she didn't even know about these meetings until a few days before. Metro *seriously* needs to publicize these meetings better, and schedule them for evenings to be fair to everybody!

  4. The Transit Rd. corridor desperately needs more Metro coverage; instead of being just the end of Metro routes, it needs routes of its own. I propose 2 routes (even if it starts as 200-level service), both starting from BNIA and running along Genesee to Transit, with one turning North (to EHM, Maple, or N. French) and the other going South (past Walden and Broadway to William/Losson or French in Cheektowaga). A good chance to help alleviate overloaded car traffic on one of the busiest streets in the area.

  7. You must give careful consideration to meetings before you get started - so use a meeting room at Seattle convention center or in your own office to talk with your colleagues about how you intend to go about meeting your goals.

  8. Indeed, there is a justifiable reason explanation behind that educational website which is that your psyche is loathsome at centering at more than one thing without a moment's delay.
