Florida #transit advocates getting organized

A unified front on transit | TBO.com: "TAMPA --
A nationwide movement is under way to build coalitions of transit riders who confront the same dilemma local bus agencies face: Ridership is at record levels but a decline in government funding is forcing cuts in service.

Until now, the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority have languished in the exhaust fumes of nationwide efforts to create coalitions of riders and advocacy groups to promote transit.

For the first time, though, an effort to unite transit interests, ranging from passengers to business and environmental groups, has begun to emerge locally."
