MAYOR BROWN RIDES RAIL TO BALL PARK AS PART OF MAYORS STAND UP FOR TRANSPORTATION DAY

Mayor Brown Joins Mayors nationwide to call for action ahead Of May 31 Expiration of Federal Transportation Bill

April 9, 2015 – As part of the national Stand Up For Transportation Day of Action, that includes events across the country, Mayor Byron Brown and dozens of other mayors across the country today called upon Congress to renew funding for the federal transportation bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), which is set to expire on May 31. Mayor Brown showed his support for transportation by riding the metro rail to the opening day of Buffalo Bisons Baseball festivities at Coca-Cola Field.

“Transportation is the lifeblood of our city and today I’m pleased to participate in ‘Mayors Stand Up for Transportation Day’ by taking the metro rail to opening day at the Ball Park,” said Mayor Brown.  “At a time when Buffalo is seeing increased investment, job growth and residential population in downtown Buffalo, an affordable and reliable transit system is critical and I join Mayors across the country in pushing Congress to reauthorize a long-term transportation bill that increases federal funding.”

In addition to mayors, a broad coalition of transportation providers, businesses, transportation system users, state partners and others are calling on Congress to pass a long-term transportation bill that increases investments in transportation infrastructure.   To learn more about Stand Up for Transportation Day please visit www.standup4trasnportation.org or follow the Day of Action on Twitter at #SU4T.
