The Transportation Problem

The Birmingham-Hoover Metropolitan Area has one of the worst public transit systems for its size of any in America.

Our depleted dysfunctional transit system is the results of:

  1. Alabama’s racists and classist 1901 constitution that prevents gasoline tax revenue from being spent on public transit;
  2. The road builder lobby that blocks state funding for public transit;
  3. A divided Jefferson County State Legislative Delegation that will not support legislation to fund public transit;
  4. Municipal and County Governments that will not pay for public transit services;
  5. And a general public that is blind to the benefits public transit provides for all our residents.

Change Is Possible!
