As part of their plan to overhaul their transportation network, Buffalo plans to use mixed-use corridor development and other land use policies that complement and promote the use of public transit options, reducing dependency on individual automobiles and parking. This plan works well with their established public transit options which they can build and improve upon to complement the mixed-use development in a symbiotic fashion. One of their biggest projects in their 2030 plans is implementation of high quality public transit between downtown Buffalo and Niagara Falls to decrease congestion, dependence on vehicles, and promote tourism and economic development. These goals will work together to strategically lower the greenhouse emissions from cars in the Buffalo area.
