Buffalo Place Rangers
No one enjoys working late. But, it’s even worse when you find yourself feeling uneasy or unsafe walking to your car at night. That’s why we’re here to remind you about the Buffalo Place Rangers, a free service that provides walking and riding escorts, courtesy of Buffalo Place Inc.
The escort service, which is based on availability, operates Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. Those in need of a ride are asked to call 716-854-RIDE.
The Buffalo Place Rangers provide a variety of services, including:
- After-hour escorts to vehicles, train stations and bus stops for Downtown employees.
- Directions and information about Downtown restaurants, theaters, parking and more.
- Easily identifiable personnel in case of an emergency.
This initiative strives to improve the daily safety of the Chippewa District and all of Downtown’s streets, parking ramps and lots for employees, residents and visitors, by placing additional eyes and ears on the ground to identify criminal activity, public safety concerns and service needs.
Next time you’re stuck working late and don’t feel comfortable walking to your vehicle, remember the Buffalo Place Rangers. For more information, visit www.buffaloplace.com.

This is a great option for those who frequent the Chippewa District regularly and don’t want to deal with the hassle of looking for parking.
