Batavia is a great town and very welcoming! It's a very safe and family friendly town. It is very close to many things to activities as well as Darien Lake!
Review Batavia
Batavia is a rural peaceful town. I like the natural view of Batavia. There is a lack of public transportation in Batavia. I want to see Uber and Lyft service in Batavia. Batavia also needs to improve RTS bus service. There is no bus service that goes to my college during summer. Batavia needs affordable public transportation.
It is a smaller city, located between two large metropolitans - Buffalo and Rochester. As a result the city is now trying to grow rapidly and losing its small city charm.
