We need to contact Governor Nixon & our statewide elected officials and urge him to devote state funding to rescue Missouri's public transportation. Public transit helps our economy, puts people to work, gets people to their jobs, and creates a vibrant, healthy community. Tell the governor what you think...

Some good news: the Obama Administration announced an additional $43.7 Million for Local Energy Efficiency Improvements in Missouri, including $8.48 Million for St. Louis County and $3.7 M for STL City. According to the website (http://www.eecbg.energy.gov):
"What can these funds be used for?"
- "Development and Implementation of Transportation Programs to conserve energy...."
Contact Charlie Dooley and Francis Slay to demand movement on utilizing these dollars for public transit improvements:
