To Provide Alternative Transportation in the Maricopa County Community.
  • Petitioning Maricopa Community College Chancellor, County, and City Governments of the City of Phoenix, Arizona

This petition will be delivered to:

Maricopa Community College Chancellor, County, and City Governments of the City of Phoenix, Arizona

To Provide Alternative Transportation in the Maricopa County Community.

    1. Petition by

      GCC Sustainability Club

We the undersigned, petition the Maricopa Community College Chancellor, County, and City Governments to provide sustainable transportation options for the students and community of Maricopa County.

 

We expect to significantly improve:

•Light rail extensions and intermodal connectivity (buses, etc.) to all Maricopa Community Colleges.

•Access to subsidized transit passes for all Maricopa Community College students.

•Pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and services at all Maricopa Community Colleges.     

 

Improved transit, walking, and biking options at all Maricopa Community Colleges are necessary strategies in reducing transportation-related air pollution and Greenhouse Gas emissions. Students, Faculty, staff, and community members cannot reduce auto dependency without safe, efficient, and affordable transportation alternatives. Such strategies contribute to improved local air quality and reduced road congestion while also minimizing long-term Greenhouse Gas emissions. Importantly, sustainable transportation options address longstanding issues of social equity, road safety, and urban livability. We want communities designed for people, not cars!

Maricopa Community College Chancellor, County, and City Governments of the City of Phoenix, Arizona
To Provide Alternative Transportation in the Maricopa County Community.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This petition is important to me because I dont have a transportation, and thank God i live close to GCC now but before i had to take like 3 buss's just to get to school and each buss takes 30 minutes to arrive it was a total of 1 and 30 minutes just to get to class. If the light rail was extended it would be really convenient for the students and the community to get from one side of the city to the other in a short period of time.

      I travel between schools, and a better transportation system means more people will use it and less people will drive. I demand a lower carbon footprint.
