Niagara Falls Bicycle Master Plan

Bikable, Walkable Niagara Falls

GObike Niagara is an initiative led by the City of Niagara Falls, Empire State Development, and GObike Buffalo to develop a City of Niagara Falls Bicycle Master Plan.

The project was funded by the Verizon Media Community Benefit Foundation at the Community Foundation for a Greater Buffalo.

87 Miles of Protected Bike Lanes

GObike was hired by the City of Niagara Falls and Empire State Development to develop a bicycle master plan for the city.

The plan envisions a vibrant and welcoming city through 87 miles of protected bicycle lanes and infrastructure improvements.

Throughout the process, we hosted four public meetings; reached more than 600 residents and stakeholders; completed two pop-up complete streets projects; and hosted a Slow Roll Bike Stampede. The plan is currently waiting for adoption by the City of Niagara Falls.
