Mayor Sheehan said in her State of the City address to the Hudson-Park neighborhood association last night that 787 has perhaps 30 more years of useful life. Downtown Albany is full of parking garages. This region is very car-dependent. It's time we built a metro. For decades regional population stagnated a little over 800,000, and now it is grown over 1 million. Last year we put in a bid for Amazon headquarters 2. Growth is great, but that proposal was impractical because putting something that large in downtown Albany would work much better if we had a metro. We have RPI and Poly right here, so our metro system could be a laboratory for developing new transit technology. Let's do it. Cost is only an excuse.
