As a Senior living in Burien, I hope to remain in my home as long as possible. This is not only good for me, but good for my community. Without keeping reliable, affordable public transportation available, not only will all those who still depend on public transportation to go to work and carry out other needs, but those in my situation will have to make costly, life limiting choices.
I join with others, who like me belong to the Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action. We see the real costs of a society who have lost touch with the most pressing challenges of our times; income disparity and environmental degradation. Having robust public transportation addresses both in real time.
