On top of wanting to double bus fares, our Capital Metro wanted to start charging the elderly who were exempt, and double fares for the handicapped. We need a paradigm shift in transportation funding away from highways, for public transit.


Co-Director Susana Almanza talks about why her organization has joined Transit Riders for Public Transportation, a new national campaign of the Labor/Community Strategy Center.

Our mission is redefining environmental issues as social and economic justice issues, and collectively setting our own agenda to address these concerns as basic human rights.
