UBRI partnered with GBNRTC, Cambridge Systematics and TY Lin International on an updated metropolitan transportation plan for the Buffalo Niagara region.

Metropolitan transportation plans are the primary tools that regions have for laying out significant, long-term improvements in their transportation system. But these plans are not simply about improving transportation—they give regions an opportunity to leverage transportation investments to realize goals for their economy, their environment and their quality of life.

So this is more than just a plan, and it’s about more than just transportation—it is a regional vision for Buffalo Niagara, a better way for us to be Moving Forward to 2050.

UBRI led the design and production of the plan document while assuring that the recommended policies, strategies and investments of Moving Forward 2050 are aligned with the work of One Region Forward. The final plan was released in early May, 2018.
