We need to continue to build a multi-modal transit system that provides Minnesotans with transportation choices and allows the state to move in different ways. Light rail transit, buses, roads, and bike paths all play a part in developing a system that works.
*A major failure of the 2012 legislative session was the GOP refusal to begin the construction of the Southwest Light Rail line. That line will connect tens of thousands of jobs and build a real network of LRT lines covering the Twin Cities.
*Prioritize funding transit at a level that prevents further fare increases. We all benefit -- bus riders and others -- from a robust transit system.
