Go Bike Buffalo has partnered with the City of Lackawanna to install a protected bike lane on the north side of Ridge Road. Metro's Nadine Chambers has been working with both groups to have the bus stop areas painted red, so that people cycling in the lane will know to look out for buses at stops. Bus riders should wait on the sidewalk. The bus will pull in and stop on the red area next to the curb, where riders can then board.
This project will reduce speeding and make the street safer and more pleasant for people walking and cycling. It will also make it safer to cross the street, which is very important for our Metro riders.
Thank you to the City of Lackawanna and Go Bike Buffalo for implementing this safety initiative. Click here for more information.
