Call on Asheville City Council to Fund Transit Route Improvements for Historically Disenfranchised Communities!
Asheville city staff recently announced their recommendations for what City Council should fund in the upcoming city budget. While the Asheville Regional Transit Coalition is excited that they’re recommending more frequent and extensive service throughout the city – bundled together as the “green” and “purple” route improvements – they have not recommended funding for a bundle of “yellow” route improvements that would serve the historically disenfranchised communities of Bartlett Arms, Livingston and South French Broad. Take action here to call on City Council to fund the yellow route improvements in this year’s budget!
