Philly Transit Study

Interesting. Kind of throws a monkey wrench in the idea that public transit should be self-sufficient, doesn't it? (Not that too many people outside the Allegheny Institute think that.)

Of course, even if you convince the folks in say, Upper St. Clair, Peters and Cranberry that their tax dollars should support public transportation (and in the Philly area, people in Bucks and Montgomery Counties) you still have all those rural Pa. legislators to convince.

And I am going to get this wrong, Jonathan, but I think that's why the governor has to keep stepping in and pulling funding from other places. I guess when my state senator has a district that starts in Lawrenceville and winds up the Allegheny to Armstrong County, and a state rep whose district starts in Morningside and runs to Ross Township, we can’t expect much help from the Western Pennsylvania Legislative contingent. And of course Dan Onorato trying to show he’s gubernatorial material to the rural parts of the state.

Still, a study like Philly’s would be cool and timely for Pittsburgh. Could UCSUR do one? (not that I’m trying to fob work off on anyone)
