The Case for Transit

BY DOUGLAS FUNKE

"It was a streetcar network that reached into all the nooks and crannies of Buffalo."

In The Case for Transit from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, President of Citizens for Regional Transit (CRT) in Buffalo, NY, Doug Funke, recalls the days of efficient streetcar transportation in Buffalo, New York and advocates for improving the current public transportation challenges in the Buffalo Niagara region.

Funke and the CRT advocate for a return to a more climate-friendly and sustainable approach to public transportation.
