Transit, bicycling, and walking in our communities can and should be so much better. But we need state lawmakers to fund the system we all deserve. That equitable, climate-friendly, amazing system is absolutely within reach—and not just in some far-off future. Change can start right now! We’ve literally done the math. In 10 years or less, our Twin Cities metro could have:
- 21 new Twin Cities bus rapid transit lines
- 5-minute rush hour wait times on core transit lines
- suburban express service all day
- free transit fares
- electric buses
- better bicycling, walking, and rolling
A simple one-cent metro sales tax increase would fund this transformation—if we fight for it.
It’s not an unsolvable mystery. It’s a basic lack of funding and a lack of leadership at the State Capitol getting in the way of transit progress. It’s infuriating. And it doesn’t have to be this way!
Take action now. Tell your legislators: fund transit, bicycling, walking, and rolling to improve daily life for Minnesota families, to protect our climate, and to create a better future for all of us.
