Buffalo State's urban campus accommodates many modes of transportation, including walking, bicycling, riding the bus and rail and car sharing:
Buffalo State's 125-acre campus is very accessible. It is located within the museum district, one of Buffalo's most vibrant and walkable neighborhoods. Many students, faculty and staff reside in the surrounding neighborhoods and use walking as their primary mode of transportation.
Bicycling is one of the most sustainable forms of transportation, and one of the healthiest. It is a convenient, effective and worthwhile alternative to bringing a car to campus. Buffalo State provides bicycle parking racks interspersed throughout the campus, as well as bike "fix it" stations.
According to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), public transportation in the United States saves about 1.4 billion gallons of gasoline and about 1.5 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. The Niagara Frontier Transit Authority (NFTA) serves Western New York by providing daily bus and rail service.
NFTA's Buffalo State student transit pass program provides undergraduate students with unlimited access to the NFTA Metro Bus and Rail System, including the #206 campus circulator.
NYS-Ride allows New York State employees to save money on eligible public transportation expenses by paying for the costs on a pre-tax basis through biweekly payroll deduction. By enrolling in NYS-Ride, Buffalo State faculty and staff members can save money on work-related transportation expenses while supporting a greener Western New York region.
Access to electric vehicle (EV) charging stations is an important consideration for owners of alternative energy vehicles. Buffalo State provides four EV charging stations for use by students, employees or visitors, free of charge. Two charging stations are located in Lot R-3, adjacent to the Burchfield Penney Art Center, with two others on Cleveland Circle at Rockwell Road.
Zipcar vehicles are available at Buffalo State. The world’s leading car sharing network locates new vehicles at locales throughout the Buffalo area, including on the Buffalo State campus.
