I have to agree with the sentiment of my friend over at Politics and Place on this one.
This is bullshit!
Port Authority has announced MASSIVE cuts. If you ride transit, you will be affected. Check out the article. Here are the changes. Public comment has been scheduled for August 19th. Be there if you give a crap about transit in Pittsburgh.
Also, talk to your state representative. They are the root of this problem. Tell them you think it's unacceptable to place public transit's head on the block to save their own heads at the ballot box.
To my new friend from Hempfield Twp. What's good for the goose is good for the gander: You don't want to pay for transit in Pittsburgh and Philly? Fine, I don't want to pay for your roads. Not an penny of state funding should go to your hard working, poor, innocent, and abused constituents in Central PA who are road bound. Let them pay for their own road maintenance and new road building costs. No state grants; no money for state roads, no nothing. Maybe God and the Tea Party will fix your roads for you.
