Why voting matters - GOP will not invest in #publictransit like Charlotte light rail

Federal transit authorities, city sign light-rail deal | "The contract means the FTA will spend $580 million on the new light-rail line. The city of Charlotte and the Charlotte Area Transit System will spend $250 million and the N.C. Department of Transportation will spend $299 million.

The line will connect uptown to UNC Charlotte, with 11 stations.

Construction on the 9.2-mile extension is scheduled to begin in November 2013; it could open as early as 2017."
