Legislators commute to highlight transit funding needs


THE WEDGE — At least 25 state legislators pledged to ride buses and trains to work at the state capitol this week to draw attention to the need for more dedicated transit funding.

Those lawmakers are taking part in the March 1–7 Roll With Us Transit Challenge co-sponsored by 13 local organizations, including nonprofits ISAIAH and Neighborhoods Organizing for Change. Transit advocates say transit funding has been flat for a decade, even as more people opt to make it part of their daily lives.
