Go Buffalo Niagara, a Transportation Management Association serving Erie and Niagara Counties, has launched a business membership program which encourages people to commute without a car.

Once a business is signed up, its employees who choose to walk, carpool, bike, or take public transit to work will have access to myriad alternative transportation incentives, such as:

  • Discounted transit passes and preferred parking for carpools
  • Guaranteed Ride Home, which provides those who don’t drive alone with a free ride home in case of emergencies
  • Discounted memberships to GObike Buffalo and Reddy Bikeshare
  • Monthly raffles for commuters who log their commute trips

“In Buffalo, the average commuter wastes 40 hours per year in peak-hour congestion, given that 82 percent of people in our region get to work by driving alone,” said Kelly Dixon, Principal Planner for the Greater Buffalo Niagara Regional Transportation Council.

Fewer cars on the road means less congestion for everyone; if it is your car, that means more time for you. Reading, resting – transit can be a real asset.
