Thirty percent of families in our neighborhoods don’t have access to a car. Without streets that support walking, cycling, and taking transit, many remain cut off from jobs, parks, supermarkets, doctors, families, and friends.
For the past 10 years, the City of Buffalo has been incrementally installing facilities to improve pedestrian and bicycle access. However, so much more is needed to reverse 50 years of design decisions and create the thriving city we all envision.
We envision a happy, healthy, and connected city where every person is able to get safely and easily where they need and want to go—no matter how they choose to get there. The fear of speeding traffic, and the crashes, injuries, and fatalities, too often caused by streets that don’t properly support our communities, place a huge and inequitable burden on our collective well-being. By coming together to build better streets, we can build a better Buffalo.
