Transit provides important community benefits

We frequently hear interest from our members and people in the community for improvements to transit.  Our members want to use transit to get to and from the college or from home to work. Business owners need reliable and convenient transit for their employees.   We also have a number of members unable to drive, who are dependent on walking, bicycling and transit.
Good transit brings many benefits and helps us meet city and regional goals:
  • Enables trips that include more walking and biking and promotes the active daily lifestyles that young people and older residents are seeking today.
  • Reduces transportation costs for families and individuals, raising quality of life and encouraging economic well-being.
  • Helps secure funds for local projects.  In California new redevelopment funds are targeted to transit related development.    This year alone $320 million is available through the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities program that will go toward development in downtown core areas that encourage walking, biking and transit usage.
