Indiana Citizens Alliance for Transit « Advocates for comprehensive transit options in communities across Indiana Indiana Citizens Alliance for Transit:
- Our alliance represents a wide spectrum of business and community interests, but we all agree that transit options are vital to the future of our community.
- As business and community leaders, we understand the need to invest tax dollars wisely, and we firmly believe that improving our mass transit infrastructure would be a smart and much needed investment in the prosperity of our community.
- The development of mass transit options in a community positively impacts energy consumption, the environment and public health (through decreased traffic crashes and vehicle pollution as well as increased physical activity).
- Mass transit makes economic sense. It is a wise investment in our community’s prosperity – creating jobs and spurring growth and opportunity.
- Every day, mass transit gives members of our community an affordable, convenient and safe transportation choice.
- Mass transit gives many individuals who would otherwise be unable to travel around our city the access they need to be independent and self-sufficient.
- Mass transit will provide this community with renewed freedom and mobility.
