Bus Riders Union Refresher

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The Bus Riders Union is making their rounds to neighborhood council meetings and other organizations asking for support in the consent decree extension and a few more items:

  • No fare increases and service cuts
  • 3,000 bus fleet by 2010
  • Prioritizing and securing funding for the Wilshire Bus-Only Lane from Downtown to Santa Monica (plus implementing 10 bus-only lanes by 2010)
  • Moratorium on rail and subway expansion until all consent decree obligations are met and a platform for a first class bus system is adopted.

How much do you agree with all or some of their points?
