BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A popular site in North Buffalo is now sharing the spotlight so more people can share a ride.
If you've ever driven past the corner of Elmwood and Amherst, you've seen a strange car with two front ends. But now that car has been replaced to make room for the newest Car Share spot in Buffalo.
Joe's Service Station has been home to the Automobious for years, but now it will also be home to the 17th vehicle in the Buffalo Car Share program. For $8 an hour members can use the car.
Organizers say its an alternative to buying a car and cheaper than hiring a taxi. Car Share vehicles are located throughout the city, and sharing this spot seemed a perfect fit because it is close to Buffalo State.
Joe's Service Station Owner Mark Kubiniec said, "It's going to share its spot with the Car Share. And the Car Share is named Autosocious, which is the Latin word for share, so the Automobious and the Autosocious will be friends."
North District Councilman Joseph Golombek Jr. added, "This is a great project for the City of Buffalo and the entire region. It's one of the newer trends in repopulating and rejuvenating cities across the country. A program like this is environmentally sound; it's good for the City of Buffalo. It shows that the old adage that Buffalo is always behind the times isn't true."
Car Share organizers want to expand to 30 vehicles over the next three years and continue to grow, especially in the lower west side and east side of the city. For more information, visit BuffaloCarShare.org .
