TransForum: Invest in Transit

From TransForm:

It’s been a brutal decade: we’ve lost billions of state dollars designated for California’s public transportation to other uses. You can see the impact everywhere in service cuts, fare hikes and too many neglected buses and trains. Well, we’ve had it here at TransForm, which is why we’ve launched a bold new statewide campaign to get our leaders to invest in transit once and for all.
