Schumer, Clinton, Slaughter Announce $1.9 Million Released For Bus Facilities At Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus

Federal Money Will Be Used To Improve Bus Facility And Add A New Bus

U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton and Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (D28) today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has released $1,943,557 in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds from 2005 to the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority. The money will be used to provide a bus and bus facilities for the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

The release of this money is great news for Buffalo, said Schumer. "Better public transportation within the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus will allow people access to areas throughout the campus that would otherwise be outside their reach. Connecting people to the medical center is important for students and employees on the campus and the general welfare of the community."

"This is great news for the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. I am pleased that we could secure this funding for the infrastructure upgrades that students, staff and the surrounding communities need," said Senator Clinton.

"These infrastructure and public transportation improvements will not only support the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and its 8,000 employees, but will also assist in our efforts to revitalize the adjacent Fruit Belt neighborhood," Congresswoman Slaughter said.

This grant will provide federal funding for a bus and bus facilities at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. Sens. Schumer and Clinton and Rep. Slaughter worked hard to secure this funding in 2005.
