The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority is updating their metro rail's fare collection system.

The board of directors recently approved two contracts totaling $18 million to overhaul the system. New fare card machines and turnstiles will be added to all stations. Rides will now be required to purchase fare cards before getting on trains.

The NFTA plans to have the overhaul complete in two years.
