Customer Appreciation Night

On Tuesday, June 24, as part of a sponsorship with the Buffalo Bisons, NFTA Metro held its Customer Appreciation Night at Coca Cola Field. Upon entering the gates, all individuals received a Metro token giveaway as well as a $2 discount off game tickets to those attendees showing valid Metro proof of fare.

With a steamy 84 degree evening and a backdrop display of Metro vehicles on the plaza area, NFTA’s Executive Director, Kim Minkel and Metro’s Director of Public Transit, Tom George, along with additional staff had the opportunity to interact with the public and discuss Metro services, as well as thank current customers for their continued support.  Chief George Gast and Officer Bob Bove from the NFTA Transit Police were also present with Cora, a member of their specially trained Canine unit. 


Muhammed Sam Sambundu, a graduate student at Buffalo State College and participant in Metro’s Dump the Pump 2014 testimonial campaign, threw out a well-thrown first pitch.  There were approximately 4,850 attendees through the gates and the outreach event proved to be a great success!
