Metro has installed its first “living roof” on the bus shelter at Ellicott and N. Division, just outside the MTC. Made of soil and live plants (drought resistant succulents), the turf roof provides cooling, creates a habitat for urban wildlife, and absorbs rainwater. The plants will resist Buffalo’s cold, thrive in the heat, and, best of all, require next to no maintenance.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 20th Annual United Way Day of Caring. This year’s team helped out at the Delaware YMCA, painting outside features that the not-for-profit hasn’t been able to get to all summer. It is wonderful that so many members of the NFTA family volunteered their time to make our community a better place.

Airfield Superintendent Thomas C. Dames can now officially add A.A.E to the end of his name. To become an accredited airport executive Tom embarked on course work that normally takes years to complete, ending with a set of exams designed to test a candidate’s knowledge of every aspect of air service, from compliance to finance to marketing. Tom worked towards the accreditation, on and off, for nine years, earning an MBA in the middle, while managing what is more than a full time job at the Airport. It is a testament to his dedication, coordination and skill.

The intrepid crew of the NFTA Boat Harbor opened the 1,000-slip marina to slip holders and the public two weeks ahead of the anticipated opening date. Less then three miles from Downtown Buffalo, the harbor opened officially, May 1 to accommodate slip holders and boaters who want to get an early start at docking or launching their boats at the marina. This is one of the few times that the facilities have ever been able to open prior May 15.
