Metro is looking for all Transit Geeks to compete in “METRIVIA.” A game of knowledge that focuses on facts and figures of Public Transportation. You can play the game at NFTA-Metro’s exhibit at the Taste of Buffalo, July 13-14.
METRIVIA is part of Metro’s on-site community display, located in the traffic circle near Niagara Square. You will also find the new community/ training bus and Metro’s new low-floor paratransit van for use by riders with special needs. Metro’s training bus provides a hands-on “classroom” for Metro personnel and includes an external awning for community engagement activities. Both vehicles will be available for attendees to board, watch “how to” videos and learn about the benefits of using public transit. Visitors (aka “contestants”) can spin the METRIVIA wheel and answer questions to win prizes. NFTA staff will also be on hand to talk about Metro programs, projects, and employment opportunities.
To avoid the hassles of driving and parking, the NFTA is encouraging the public to take Metro Rail to the Taste of Buffalo. Festival-goers can park at Metro’s LaSalle or University lots for free and take Metro Rail to Lafayette or Fountain Plaza Stations, which are both a short walk to the festival.
