When looking long-term, would it be possible to extend transportation that already exists?

Anna commented on The "T"

As a new graduate that lived in Oakland while being a student for four years, a T stop in the Oakland area would have been very beneficial. It would have helped with transportation to downtown restaurants/shops, to the north shore for concerts/sports, and even to the South Hills for shopping. Also, the hospitals in Oakland serve as employment for many around the city. As I have worked for UPMC while in school, I know many of my coworkers would have benefitted from this transportation to and from where they reside. Another location would be East Liberty. This is a growing neighborhood with many new housing opportunities and businesses. Between these locations are areas like Shadyside and Bloomfield that would be within walking distance of the stops. As there is no longer a grocery store in Oakland, many need to get to these other neighborhoods just to get their essentials. Thank you for inquiring on an opinion.
