The Ohio Public Transit Association is asking supporters to demand more state support for public transportation from their legislators.
The organization has launched fundohiotransitnow.org with links to legislators home pages’ and contact information. Just fill in your name and address, and the site will send a letter to all your elected representatives.
From their letter: “While the typical state provides 23% of the funding needed for their transit systems, Ohio provides less than 3%.”
Every major city in Ohio has been affected by budget cuts over the last few years. This is an important effort for our cities. I would encourage readers to take part.
