Mobile tour option #3 for #ACSP2018

ACSP and the University at Buffalo are thrilled to offer  #ACSP2018 conference attendees six different mobile tour options! In this issue of eNews Weekly, we are featuring Mobile Tour #3: Buffalo Transportation Legacy & Current Innovation.

This bicycle tour explores how transportation defined Buffalo’s historical development, including its position at the terminus of the Erie Canal and its status as the nation’s second largest rail center. Tour participants will also learn about current and upcoming projects to promote multi-modal transportation through “complete streets” and transportation demand management. Discussions with local transportation experts during the tour will focus on Buffalo’s position as a “legacy city” where transportation planning must occur within infrastructural constraints. The tour ticket includes two 20-minute rides on Reddi Bikeshare and is suitable for novice cyclists. In the event of inclement weather, the tour will proceed via bus.

Take your learning out of the classroom and into the local community with a mobile tour at #ACSP2018! Click here for a complete list of mobile tour options. Tickets can be purchased when registering for the conference. Don't delay, the mobile tours are selling fast!
