Something to think about. The future of your town.

Oil is not going to be cheap again. The private auto and it's companion sprawl are no longer sustainable.

Cities that recognize this will be reducing car-dependency and the ones that don't will be chained in infrastructure servitude. There will be a race to the top. Who can first reduce the waste.

Every dollar your city spends on parking lots and such is an investment in the past, and a lost opportunity in the race to the future.

Now is the time to act. By becoming a bold free-transit advocate, you will be providing breathing space for the timid public transport advocates. At your local civic group bring up the idea. Remember, free is cheaper.
