FACT: The Houston region plans to spend $330.55 or more per person on roads in the next year, more than other any major metro are in the country.
More roads lead to more cars on the road. A strong transit system gets people out of their cars, saving them money on gas, maintenance, insurance, and parking. Transit is a healthier option too, improving overall air quality and personal fitness. In Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington, and San Francisco commuters can park the car and make the daily trip by rail. Vote AGAINST the Metro referendum to send the message that we want to do the same.
