Mass Transit

Its been awhile since I’ve posted anything even remotely political, but as a regular transit rider and supporter of the MTA, I wanted to post this poster produced by the Working Families Party in New York.  As any NewYorker already knows, significant fare hikes, and massive reductions in service are set to kick  in over the next few months, and its not too late to take action (or at least voice your outrage).

Even if you can afford the fare hikes, there are thousands of people for whom the proposed hikes and service cuts are really, really detrimental, so click on the poster or go to the link below (, print out some of these, and spread them around!  Write a few letters to representatives while you’re at it; there’s a form to do just that after the link!

Here’s the trailer for what looks to be a decent attempt at encapsulating Milwaukee’s mass transit woes:

Spread it around!
