In Texas, many people are afraid to advocate public transit

Advocate : "Victoria Transit offers fixed bus routes with stops throughout the city, provides a service to help people get to work and has routes for people with disabilities.

Each year, the number of passenger trips increases, and residents have expressed interest in more routes being offered in town and in less highly traveled parts of the city.

With the indication that there is a growing demand for public transportation, should the city of Victoria invest more in public transportation?"

Good #publictransit would save people a lot of time and money in Hernando, Florida

hernando today : "This would also enable elderly citizens to cancel their dependence on driving their own cars, even purchasing automobiles, canceling car insurance, saving hundreds or thousands of dollars, and providing a safer more secure mode of transportation to the drivers and to the community at large. This system would give passengers more independence, freedom and savings. It would enable parents to be less dependent upon providing rides to their children and free up their own time."
