Statement of Support
"The Capital Area Friends of Transit recognize that transit is essential to maintain a high quality of life for all by providing convenient, accessible and affordable transportation choices that improve job and economic growth, and protect the environment.
"We support a comprehensive regional transit system, including expanded bus services, fixed rail corridors and local circulators, which creates efficient travel options and supports sustainable land use patterns that will help our metropolitan area continue to grow and prosper.
"We support implementation of the recommended vision of the Special Transit Advisory Committee (STAC) and urge development of specific, local plans. We call for increased transit funding from the State of North Carolina and the federal government and support using a fair mixture of local funding sources to pay for the transit system.
"The Capital Area Friends of Transit will encourage the public to support a regional transit plan consistent with the values expressed above."
