Public Transit is back on the ballot April 6th of 2010 in St Louis County!

The you tube link below has a video of the ad that some may have seen. 

As a Realtor in St Louis, my own personal use of public transportation is limited, but its impact on the region is often understated.

When looking for a city to move jobs to, move office locations, or conventions, planners and corporate heads consider the network of public transportation as a factor in thier decision.  Buyer's offered a position in an area also consider residing close to public transportation. 

For St Louis to compete with other cities in the coming years, investing in this type of infrastructure is imperative.

Public transportation is the way to go; it is THE sector we must invest in and pressure our representatives to press for. Instead of a bridge to "nowhere" here in Alaska, it would be  much more beneficial to take the money and invest it into a light rail system from Anchorage to "the Valley",where peole live who commute to the biggest city in Alaska - Anchorage.

Great to hear that people in St; Louis are serious about reducing their carbon footprint and have put public transportation on the April ballot. Go, St. Louis, go vote YES ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION,

Thanks for your support Marianne!  What is interesting about St Louis Missouri, is that the access to modern public transportation was a huge part of the growth of our city when it was one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country, but many in our area don't support upgrading this infrastructure.   In time, what we do today in this regard will make a major difference when gasoline is at $8 / gallon.
