The United States of Transportation Inequity

Commented Jul 6, 2010 at 11:13:32 in Politics

“The St. Louis community, home to the Transportation Equity Network and it's ally, Metropolitan Communities United, was not immune to vast cuts of its mass transit system. In 2009, 2300 transit lines were slashed. MCU organized a campaign urging voters to pass Proposition A which would create a half cent sales tax in St. Louis County. The passage of of this Proposition would trigger a collection of a quarter cent sales tax in St. Louis City. The funds generated by these taxes would restore the transit cuts and expand transit opportunities in the St. Louis community. Through the ground level efforts of MCU Proposition A was passed in April. This is just another example of how much a community depends on mass transit and mass transit depends on its community. Good job St. Louis!”
