Essential transit - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "Our buses and trolleys do more than shuttle people to work. They keep tens of thousands of cars off our roads and bridges. (You think traffic, potholes and construction are bad now? Just wait.) They bring people to schools, shopping, hospitals, bars and restaurants. Quite often, they keep drunken drivers off the road.
Moreover, transit helps keep our communities and businesses humming. It is the only source of transportation for many students, senior citizens and working poor. Without it, businesses, and jobs, would suffer."
