And Current Innovation (By Bicycle)
This tour explores how transportation defined Buffalo’s historical development, including its position at the terminus of the Erie Canal and its status as the nation’s second largest rail center. We will also learn about current and upcoming projects to promote multi-modal transportation through “complete streets” and transportation demand management. Discussions with local transportation experts during the tour will focus on Buffalo’s position as a “legacy city” where transportation planning must occur within infrastructural constraints. Includes two twenty minute rides on Reddi Bikeshare suitable for novice cyclists. In case of bad weather, we’ll go by bus.
