Buffalo is a commuter's paradise, billed as the “20-Minute City” for its lack of traffic delays and blissfully brief commutes.
Forbes magazine has declared Buffalo the “best U.S. city” for commuting.
In fact, Buffalo’s average commute time—yes, it has been clocked at 20 minutes—is the second-shortest of the country’s 52 largest cities.
That translates to an enhanced quality of life for our faculty, staff and students, who enjoy stress-free travel regardless of where they’re headed around the region.
Buffalo’s Metro Bus provides quick, economical service throughout the city and suburbs.
The Metro Rail line
connects UB’s South Campus with downtown Buffalo and the
neighborhoods in between. All rides are free in downtown
Buffalo. (UB employees who are regular commuters might wish
to take advantage of the NYS-Ride program that allows pre-tax dollars to
be used for monthly passes.)
