Road Warriors

Last month, I posted about transit in the metro and its various problems. That post made its way, in a rather circuitous fashion involving the Minneapolis mayor's blog, to a member of an organization called go Minnesota!, who turned me on to their excellent and useful website.

go Minnesota! is all about solving Minnesota's transit problems. They want safe roads, reduced congestion, pollution control and a public transit system suitable for a modern, thriving metropolis. Sign up, and they'll tell your legislators you're concerned about transit issues. They'll provide you with editable emails to send to your legislators. They'll give you all sorts of information you didn't have about the issues and a veritable bouquet of proposed solutions. Sound good? Go to their website, already.

Fourth pew, center sounded off...

Solving transit problems? Has anyone told TXDOT that solving them is an option?

(for you outlanders: TXDOT
= Texas Department of Transportation. Properly pronounced with a heavy inflection of sarcasm on the 'transportation.')
