How can we plan for safe, reliable and environmentally-sustainable transit that is accessible to all regardless of income, national origin, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, or ability? Why should we have a transportation policy that emphasizes the use of mass transit and alternatives to the automobile and truck and air travel for transport? Why should we have a major public investment in mass transportation, so that such systems are cheap or free to the public and are safe, and accessible to all? What are the most ecologically sound forms of transportation that minimize pollution and maximize efficiency?
