(Adopted 1967; restudied and revised 2002)

Support of the concept of public transportation as a public service with equity and political accountability in its provision; locally administered circulation areas responsible for adequate community and feeder systems; a multi-county transit authority having appropriate links among transit, land use and economic, social and environmental concerns which is responsible for planning, operation and construction of an integrated rapid transit system; ongoing coordination of transportation systems to achieve effective and efficient public service and continuing public education to promote awareness and use of those systems. Support adequate transit financing, including highway user taxes, flexibility in the use of funds and public subsidy for operating expenses.
