SYRACUSE, N.Y.—In the future will riders take a bus, a train or a streetcar to get to some of Syracuse's most popular destinations[...]

False.... NY has 10s of times more than that number. NYC Subway alone transports 5.6M daily. Then you still have to factor in buses, Metro-North, and Long Island Rail Road.

Nearly 70% of US transit ballot measures pass

According to the American Public Transportation Association (Apta), the 49 ballot measures totalling nearly $US 200bn that were voted on were the largest in history

Actually, the first step is to have the infrastructure in place. This is because public transit (in the West) is planned and funded by the government and isn't subject to the same market forces as real estate allowing communities to plan for what they want, rather than just build for what they have. So you don't need to have enough density to "support" it All you need in order to support it is the decision to do so, since tax funding doesn't rely on consumer demand. Therefore, you can choose to build it in anticipation of where density will be in the future.

You can't do this with real estate in the West since most of it is market based, because just changing zoning to allow for denser construction is pointless if you can't attract people to live there due to the lack of transportation options. You either need to build automobile accommodation into the developments increasing their cost and providing a dis-incentive against other modes that may be provided later on, or you need to find people willing to live their before infrastructure is provided without any guarantee of when that might be. The development is likely to fail.

Funding will be secured for the extension of Buffalo's "Subway to Nowhere." The stunted 6.4 mile line has existed in its current state since 1986. The extension would most likely be the light blue line in the attached document.
