Use portion of funding to improve Metro Rail

Regarding the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority’s difficulty in obtaining funds to maintain Metro Rail, it occurred to me that, given the key role that transportation plays in the expansion of the Medical Corridor and downtown housing, shouldn’t we be using a portion of the so-called Buffalo Billion for this purpose?

If an investment in this critical piece of the city’s infrastructure – and one with such positive effects on the environment – wouldn’t qualify as an appropriate use of these funds, what would?
