Overview

GObike Buffalo is working to build a thriving, dynamic and connected Buffalo by promoting biking, alternative transportation options, and improved streetscapes to create positive impacts on health, our environment, our streets and the overall quality of life for all residents.

 

While we love to bike, GObike Buffalo’s role goes much deeper and our impact has been significant.  We:   

  • Created and introduced the Buffalo Bicycle Facility Master Plan in collaboration with the City of Buffalo to encourage a more bicycle-friendly city as a key strategy for enhancing overall livability.
     
  • Advocate Complete Streets, a national effort to ensure consideration for commuters of all kinds is included in new road construction, making it easier to cross the street, bike to work, window shop or just enjoy the streetscape.
     
  • Helped secure Buffalo’s designation as a Bronze Level bicycle-friendly city by the League of American Bicyclists. Working with the City, we are shooting for Silver Level status by 2017.
     
  • Support and encourage bicyclists of all ages and interests levels through our community bike workshop, the installation of signature bike racks, in community education, and in creating fun, innovative and highly anticipated events.
