Transit riders air grievances in Lackawanna march to bus stop

The Buffalo News : "Passengers who frequently use public transportation marched Sunday afternoon along Ridge Road in Lackawanna, calling for "transit justice" and urging the Niagara Frontier Transit Authority to improve service and offer more bus routes.

About 60 marchers traced the steps walked by residents of Lackawanna's First Ward, who on Saturdays must hike at least a mile by foot to catch a bus on South Park Avenue heading south toward McKinley Mall. Depending on where you live in the First Ward, that walk could be much longer, and on Sundays there are no buses. If you want to head east, toward the Southgate Plaza, you're out of luck entirely on weekends for bus service."
