Public transportation is an important part of every community– and until recently hasn't been a major focus in Texas. VIA has paved an accessible future for generations to come and continues to push innovation with their new ride share program. My passion and sales experience provide me with an adequate foundation for the role and I've provided information below to support my consideration for the position.

Public transit users are healthier. It is proven that those who use public transportation get over three times the amount of physical activity per day than those who don’t. Public transportation promotes positive interactions between neighbors and other city residents. This leads to an overall happier community with active and healthy neighbors.

Buses create community cohesion. In San Antonio Over 80% of cars traveling to and from work occupy only one passenger. Communities that have public transit reduces the amount of cars on the road and decreases your likelihood of getting into an accident. In addition to decreased traffic and safety, its highly affordable with its monthly pass equivalent to a tank of gas. It saves you money, and the risk of harming others while giving you time back you would spend in traffic. 

Public transportation improves access. It improves access to education, employment and everything people need to be independent.  12% of transit riders are traveling to school and 60% of transit riders are going to work.For individuals with disabilities, riding on buses is also safer due to the amount of accessibility features available.  Ramps, lifts, securement belts and more make all Pace buses accessible to entire communities.

My knowledge doesn't supersede my love and aspiration for this city. Since I've joined the biking community and subscribed to a monthly pass it has allowed me to see the beauty of San Antonio in its infrastructure, system and people. I'm devoted to not only participating but fully contributing to making sure San Antonio is a future city of tomorrow.
