Public #transit is the blood of civilization. Are we civilized?

Transit ripple effects: "If cuts are enacted, estimates cite that 20,000 residents will lose transit. How many others will lose out due to schedule adjustments is incalculable. What ripple effects will that have for our communities where more than one in 10 lives below the poverty line, more than one in eight has below basic literacy skills, and more than one in seven is insecure about where a future meal will come from? How will those numbers rise if we continue to ignore these basic needs of our neighbors? Do we want to find out?"
