Putting the Boat Harbor to bed

The NFTA Boat Harbor bids good-bye to another successful season: Slip sales and daily launchers were both up almost four percent for 2011. Overall revenue increased a whopping 12 percent.
This past season saw a number or returning events, like the Bassmaster Weekend Series, which shipped in competitive anglers from all over the country. It also debuted a lot of new attractions, like the Queen City Ferry - a water taxi operating between the inner and outer harbors, and the colorful Adirondack chair collection, for sitting back and watching the water, proving you don't need a boat to enjoy the Boat Harbor.

We'll see you in May.

Executive Director Addresses Metro Fare Structure


Dear Community:

There has been a great deal of information in the press recently about the possibility of Metro adjusting fares and reducing service on routes that have extremely low ridership.

I'd like to take this opportunity to help set the record straight and present some relevant facts that are driving these difficult considerations.

On the field


Sun. Oct. 9, Ralph Wilson Stadium will be seeing a lot more pom poms than usual. 340, actually. And pink. At the Buffalo Bills “Billieve” game approximately 170 current and former Buffalo Jills will perform prior to kick-off and hold a ribbon ceremony to support breast cancer awareness. The squad will, for the first time ever, span six decades. In the middle of it all, is Metro’s very own Lisa Piecki.
