NFTA’s Family Night at the Ballpark

NFTA’s Family Night at the ballpark Thursday, July 18, had all the essential ingredients for a relaxing night of entertainment including a balmy 85 degree evening. The event was the perfect opportunity for authority employees and their families to come together while the Buffalo Bisons faced the Toledo Mud Hens at Coca-Cola Field.

The Future of Transportation

As a part of University at Buffalo's National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI), 21 high school students visited various NFTA locations in order to learn about the multiple facets of a career in the transportation industry. Made possible by a grant from the Federal Highway Administration, the NSTI encourages students to explore various careers within this industry through the exposure of today's practices, along with the opportunity to converse with transportation professionals.
