The Asheville Regional Transit Coalition is excited to build on years of work by local transit activists and other community leaders to call for much-needed improvements to Asheville area transit services. While there’s been more attention lately on local transit issues in conjunction with Transit Week , many have worked for years to improve services and provide more transportation options for all who depend on or choose to ride the bus. We believe that the City has a great opportunity now to make investments in transit service ensuring it operates in more areas for longer hours, seven days a week and at higher frequencies. Doing so will open up opportunities for those who depend on transit for work, school, and running errands and make choosing public transportation easier.
We’re excited to be kicking off this campaign, and we can’t do it alone. Join us by lending your support today, and call on City Council to put resources toward transit service improvements in this year’s budget.
