Are you a Metro Rail advocate? Do you think that the transit should be improved, or extended? Do you want to hear what others have to say? People like Mark Croce, Hal Morse, Patrick Whalen and Howard Zemsky? Should we be taking notes from Buffalo’s history in order to plan for Buffalo’s public transportation future (see lead image)?
Or you can attend a conference that is intended to jumpstart (again) a necessary conversation on the matter. This is not another meeting where words are left unheard. It sounds as if this is the real deal for those who are truly interested in learning about the future of the Metro Rail. Included in this all day affair is a tour of the DL&W Terminal, Central Terminal and proposed airport light rail extension (from 2pm – 4pm). Keynote Speaker for the conference is Dr. Nadine Lemmon, a Legislative Advocate for the Tri-State Transportation Campaign “Making Transit Work…. Economically!”
