Debbie

Mass Transit Means…
A time when I can sit back, relax, and read a good book while somebody else does the driving for me.

Kevin

Mass Transit Means…
The life blood of the city and a life saver for me.

Brian

Mass Transit Means…
Not wanting the costs associated with a car. It allows me to get out, be social, be involved, volunteer, be entertained and just… Be!

Calvin

Mass Transit Means…
The difference between staying home and being able to achieve my needs. It means being able to eat or go hungry; work or remain unemployed; attend civic events or just listen to others, with their own cars, who were able to participate in these events; being able to be sociable or be a recluse.

Jason

Robert

Mass Transit Means…
Having reliable public transportation to be able to get to work and back home, expanded hours for those working late, and the freedom to be able to get to important destinations, such as shopping, doctors appointments, etc.

Angie

Mass Transit Means…
Having public transit available seven days a week. Public transportation should grow as the city does and not just the old city limits. Public transportation should run late enough that ALL can go to event and not be afraid of missing the last bus home, (IE sporting events, lighting of the Christmas tree or fireworks) Public transportation should be dependable. It should be if one misses the bus they don’t have to wait an hour for the next. When a bus breaks down, there needs to be another bus available. And there should be friendly drivers.

Looking for easy ways to build into your schedule opportunities to hustle. Instead of driving, use mass transit to work on emails or read industry material.

You can get wherever you want to go, any bus line from 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. at night…….not just designated routes.

Sherry

Mass Transit Means…
Providing safe and reliable travel to all citizens in this city and region – we have so many jobs go unfilled because there is no reliable transportation people can count on in the county/region. That’s a travesty in this city in 2016….

Marvin

Mass Transit Means…
Progress, a world-class city.

Teri

Mass Transit Means…
Affordable, easy access to anywhere in the city, and not just for Monday through Friday 9-to-5ers. A strong mass transit system signifies a town is invested in its citizenry and has knowingly made the grown-up leap to “city”.

Irune

Mass Transit Means…
Democracy, connection, equal opportunity, care, socialization, and physical/mental integration rather than segregation.

Clyde

Mass Transit Means…
There are buses going all day, all night, every 15 minutes or less.  Seven days a week. Mass transit means having a way from point A to B regardless of the time of day or night. If one bus is missed, another is on the way.
