As a largely rural county with significant distances between city centers, reliable and affordable public transit options are essential for many of our residents. For our youth, low-income residents and seniors, public transit is often the singular lifeline to jobs, shopping, and critical services. Access must be maintained and expanded.
- Protecting service levels and transit coverage to our community, especially during difficult economic times
- In keeping with locally adopted General Plans, creating alternative transportation solutions, including bicycle paths, walkable neighborhoods, and the SMART train
- Leading by example through our County government by greening our fleet of vehicles to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint
