As many of you know, I am a strong supporter of public transit in the City of Raleigh and throughout the state. There are few downsides to providing good, safe and clean transit for everyone’s convenience. Even when it came to the Transportation Bond Bill, I initially voted against the $75 million bill because I support covering our entire costs and committing to completing transit projects.
Tomorrow I will be hosting a RaleighPlus Hangout on transit with special guests Damien Graham of the Triangle Transit Authority and Raleigh City Councilor Russ Stephenson. I want you to join and bring your thoughts and ideas on everything transit. Here’s a few to get you going:
The more people that take buses, the fewer individual cars on the road, leading to less traffic and better air quality
Public transit is a big factor for economic development and helps draw more companies to the area
Leaving your car at home and taking the bus can save you money in gas and parking
Check out the Capital Area Transit!
