Go Buffalo Mom

What is Go Buffalo Mom?

GO Buffalo Mom was designed to provide personalized transportation education and trip planning services to low-income pregnant women, along with a financial education and savings program to make transportation more affordable.

By improving access to affordable, dependable transportation systems for low-income pregnant women, the likelihood that those most at risk for poor birth outcomes will get to doctors’ appointments and other important services will improve, and thus, increase the probability of delivering healthy babies.

GO Buffalo Mom was co-designed with 100 potential customers using human-centered design principles. Go Buffalo Mom was designed following individual interviews with pregnant women in community and clinic settings.  

More Details

Total project cost is $0.611M which is derived from 80% federal Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5312 Funding and 20% local match (United Way of Buffalo & Erie County - Fund for Shared Insight funds).

Fiscal constraint is maintained as this is new funding and does not count against regional planning targets/allocations. The let date is 5/1/17. View full details for the project, including an Initial Project Proposal form (IPP).
