Why is Buffalo known as the Queen City? The name came about in the 1840s. Buffalo was the state’s second largest city. So if NYC is “king”, then Buffalo is “queen”.
From things to do to places to stay, shop and eat, Buffalo’s two Visitor Centers don’t just have the answers, they also have the helpful Buffalonians you need to craft your vacation. And while you’ll only find our interactive regional map online, the Visitor Centers are stocked with brochures, public transportation information, events schedules and Buffalo’s best selection of souvenirs and merchandise. Plus you’ll also get answers to all those burning questions, like “where can I find the best deals in town?” and “what the heck is Dyngus Day?”
Getting around Buffalo and its suburbs is easy and convenient using the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) Metro Bus and Rail system. The Metro Rail runs along Main Street from the KeyBank Center to the South Campus of the University at Buffalo, with several stops in between. The train is free while traveling above ground. However, if your ride takes you past the Theatre District, down into the subway, there is a small charge. Be sure to purchase your ticket before entering the underground portion.
Bus stops are found on almost every street corner downtown, as well as at many other spots throughout the region. Bus schedules are available at all transportation centers, the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, the Downtown Visitor Center and many local banks.
Ride-sharing services like Uber or Lyft are also available no matter where your travels take you within the region.
If you prefer to drive, these maps will help. And you’ll find plenty of parking throughout the city to house your car while you’re exploring.
