EFFICIENT AND RELIABLE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS
After decades of incremental action, our transit infrastructure is at a point of crisis. Overhauling our transit network can unleash immense environmental, public health, safety, and economic benefits. It can bring opportunity within reach, give hours back to commuters, contribute to cleaner air and water, and dramatically reduce our contribution to climate change.
A project of this scale requires vision and persistence. Amber will advocate for:
Expanding regional transit and increasing the frequency of trains
Electrifying trains and buses
Making fares accessible to all
Collaborating with municipal leaders to secure and disperse sufficient infrastructure and road-work funds
Amber supports the Transportation & Climate Initiative and the Fair Share Tax Amendment, both of which can help generate the funds necessary for these critical transit solutions.
