Transit for a Stronger Economy
I strongly support the “Transit for a Stronger Economy” bill, and I'm disappointed to see that it seems to be in trouble at the legislature.
Still, there is hope that a bill with funding to increase bus service, support new Light Rail lines, Bus Rapid Transit and help create higher-amenity “Enhanced Bus” routes is possible. The bill is supported by over 50 organizations, including Transit for Livable Communities and the Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee. It would use a small sales tax increase, like nearly all US regions, to fund transit. I urge you to contact your State Legislators and encourage them to support this incredible opportunity to provide stable, adequate funding for transit in Minneapolis. You can take action here.
