Almost all my family lives in the state of RI and I know how much they depend on the bus system there.

The extensive public transit system RIPTA provides is one of Rhode Island's key assets. (What other state can claim a public transit system that provides access to nearly every one of its cities and towns?) If Rhode Island wants to appeal to new economy workers and become competitive in the new economy, RIPTA is an asset that needs to be maintained and expanded upon--not diminished.

As a Libertarian, I understand that not everything can be run like a business. RIPTA use is about the public good and needs to be supported financially by government

This is no time to cut back on a cost effective substitute for high priced gasoline. Nor to go backwards on environmental concerns.

To be a viable city we must have good transportation.

Regular, reliable, and frequent bus service is a necessity, not a luxury, especially in a time when gas is heading well above $4 per gallon. Service in Warren which connects us to Newport and Providence is good, but must be maintained. Funding of mass transit in Rhode Island is essential, and must be increased, not cut.
