Advocates are already hard at work on a plan for 2014 to secure funding to expand our region’s networks for transit, bicycling, and walking.
Transportation—the cost of getting to work, school, and other places—is the second-largest household expense, more than health care or education (only housing costs more). But, so far, this region lags behind others in making the investments to ensure that more people have transportation options that are more affordable, healthier, and that expand job opportunity and access.
If you support increased funding to build-out the region's transit system (bus and rail) in 15 years, expand transit in Greater Minnesota, and provide safe, accessible bicycling and walking, please join us.
