Buffalo State Welcomes Bicyclists!
Bicycling is one of the most sustainable forms of transportation, and one of the healthiest. It is a convenient, effective and worthwhile alternative to bringing a car to campus.
Currently Buffalo State is undertaking an initiative* aimed at enhancing bicycling conditions and promoting bicycling on the campus. Staff from the offices of facilities planning and environmental health and safety, along with the Parking and Transportation Committee, are working with a consultant team – a group of national experts in developing bicycle-related policy, infrastructure and program recommendations for colleges and universities.
The college has contracted with Alta Planning + Design to conduct a transportation assessment focused on bicycling, and to develop a bicycling master plan for the campus. The master plan will provide a comprehensive vision, recommendations and a work plan for enhancing bicycling conditions at Buffalo State. Wendel Companies and GObike Buffalo will assist Alta in executing these tasks and implementing selected strategies and improvements.
* This environmental benefit project is being undertaken in connection with the settlement of an enforcement action taken by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation related to Article 19 of the Environmental Conservation Law. The enforcement action relates to power plant emissions in 1997 and 1998 that were found to exceed the acceptable threshold.
