The League of Women Voters proposes to reduce vehicular traffic by increasing the use of public transportation with expanded mass transit systems.  
Position History: 

This position was adopted in April, 2008, by the Billings League of Women Voters and it was adopted May, 2008, at the state convention, by the Montana League of Women Voters.

Improved public transportation will provide better and more affordable access to housing and jobs for Montana citizens and will help Montana to reach overall goals of conservation and reduction in the use of fossil fuels.

The League of Women Voters urges maintenance of existing highways and requests reexamination of plans for new highways in order to divert funding to public transportation.
