WNYT.com: "Mayor Shawn Morse said the Cohoes City School District is considering a proposal to give about 960 eligible students swipe cards to take CDTA buses.
“It's just about time that our kids have this opportunity so I applaud the school district,” Morse said. “I'm fully supportive of it as is the rest of the city officials I believe,” he said.
The proposal follows the death of 16-year-old Brittany Knight who was killed along 787 by a driver last June.
Knight’s death sparked outrage over the dangerous intersections on 787.
It was the third pedestrian death in 15 years at that stretch of road where the highway becomes an urban street."
