It’s time for the Minnesota legislature to fund a 21st-century transportation system and position all our families, communities, and businesses for economic health and quality of life.

ECONOMIC HEALTH

To succeed in the 21st century, Minnesota communities need strong employment bases, productive workers who can get to jobs affordably, and ways for residents of every age and ability to access opportunity. Transportation underpins all of these.

QUALITY OF LIFE

Throughout Minnesota, residents of every age spend too much time in traffic, wait too long for buses to come, and can’t safely cross streets or ride bicycles to nearby destinations. The lack of these options affects community health and vitality.

LesleyAnne Crosby is a massage therapist who depends on clients in suburbs such as Eden Prairie. She spent so much time on the bus commuting between Minneapolis and the suburbs she had to leave a well-paying job. “When you miss the bus, you have to wait for an hour,” she said. “It affects how you live, how you eat, how you shop, how you sleep. You don’t get to rest when you get home at 9 p.m. and have to wake up at 5 a.m. You don’t have time to do anything else but get up and go to work.”
