Andy Rosevear started this petition to The Common Counsel President Darius G. Pridgen and NFTA

New legislation has passed that not only made car parking downtown equal to transit fare in Buffalo but reduced the pay period for drivers by 6 hours each day, as well as taking away paid parking on Saturdays.

The intention is to force downtown workers to drive costly and dangerous cars downtown to take advantage of free and cheap parking, while transit riders get stuck paying more at all hours and all weekend.

This not only forces everyone parking in the city to pay very low rates simply to be at work, but it also is a huge matter of public safety and discourages economic growth of the businesses downtown. 
 
 Let's make transit cost the same as street parking - free after 5pm and on weekends.
