Traffic is getting worse every year and housing is becoming less affordable. We need to expand light rail now, and create affordable housing options.
Investing to rapidly expand light rail
Our hot job market and beautiful region are leading to rapid population growth with no end in sight. These jobs help our economy, but also bring more traffic and a tighter, more expensive housing market. We need more transit options ASAP to get our region mobile again and reduce congestion.
Cars and buses get stuck in gridlock. Most major cities have light rail, subway, or other transportation systems that run on their own dedicated route and have traffic signal priority. We need to complete our light rail system as soon as possible and add bus rapid transit service to high commuter locations not served by light rail.
