Attention Multi-Modal Riders 📣

Reddy bikes are now available at Amherst St. and Summer-Best stations!

Reddy Bikeshare, in partnership with Independent Health, NFTA and Better Bike Share, has deployed two additional stations along Metro Rail to support multi-modal transit riders, essential workers and those traveling for essential trips in Buffalo. You can now access Reddy bikes at Amherst St. and Summer-Best stations! These are in addition to LaSalle, Delevan-Canisius College, Allen-Medical, Fountain Plaza, Church St., Erie Canal Harbor and other downtown stations!
.
.
We believe that bikeshare used in combination with transit provides increased flexibility and also adds some exercise and activity to your commute. We also believe that mobility options are more important now than ever and we are continuing to work on efforts to make Reddy bikes more accessible to our community.
.
.
Reddy bikes are still equipped with hand sanitizer, courtesy of Independent Health, to help keep you protected. Stay safe everyone!

During these unprecedented and difficult times, our Metro operators are on the front lines committed to serving our essential riding community every day. However, there are those special moments that demonstrate just how compassionate and dedicated these constant responders and hometown heroes can be.

While on route, Friday, April 10, Metro driver Johnny noticed a woman in the background that was fiercely running from a nearby grocery store with a bag in hand trying to catch the bus. He realized her distress, put his vehicle flashers on and pulled over out of traffic to wait for her. It was a wonderful union when they connected, and one that warmed a lot of hearts especially during these difficult times.

Johnny has been working for Metro for two years and enjoys his job. When asked about the incident, he said: "Providing good service to the community during this health crisis brings joy to my heart."

To help slow the spread of COVID–19, the use of a face covering is required when you are unable to socially distance yourself from others.

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings.

Learn how to make, and wear a face covering, here: https://loom.ly/mZ8p_Yk
