Below is Wisconsin Association of Mobility Managers’ 2016 statement favoring re-enabling of Regional Transit Authorities by the Wisco-Legislature.
Obviously, the Legislature did not re-enable RTAs. No bills were even introduced.
mass transit: it’s not rocket science. We HAVE the technology, folks.
A sustainable society is where people people are not subject to conditions that systematically undermine their capacity to meet their needs. (James, S. and T. Lahti, (2004). The Natural Step for Communities: How Cities and Towns can Change to Sustainable Practices. Gabriola Island, BC: New Society Publishers)
Wisconsin is a society where lower-income people ARE subject to a condition systematically undermining their capacity to get to a job, if one can be found; to get to school, get to the doctor, get to places where food needs can be met, etc.
Wisconsin is not a sustainable society, as it stands right now.
Let’s get a movement going to provide means of transportation to ALL our people, regardless of income levels. Let’s jail-break people out of systemic inequality.
