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.
Great transit brings many benefits to reach community goals:
- Enables trips that include more walking and biking and promotes active daily lifestyles.
- Reduces transportation costs for families and individuals.
- Raises our quality of life and encourages economic well-being.
- Helps secure funds for local projects. In California new redevelopment funds are targeted to transit related development. As much as $320 million is available annually through the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities program that will go toward development in downtown core areas that encourage walking, biking and transit usage. A $20 million grant was awarded to City of Redding for a $40 million redevelopment project in Downtown for the Downtown Loop project that will benefit everyone in our region.
