Transit for Livable Communities (TLC): #13 Expert-Identified Environmental Nonprofit in Minnesota

November 17th, 2011 by dawn Leave a reply »

Transit for Livable Communities (TLC) has been critical in moving public transportation forward in Minnesota.

We all need to get somewhere. Whether we’re traveling to a job, to the grocery store, or home for dinner, we all need safe, convenient, and affordable ways to reach those places. We need a balanced transportation system that can serve Minnesota’s growing needs. With one million people moving to Minnesota by 2030, we need a transportation system that can help us take advantage of all that Minnesota offers—a system that gives more people an opportunity to step outside and hop on a train or a bus or safely walk and ride bicycles to our parks, grocery stores, and schools. Right now, Minnesota’s transportation system is out of balance, mainly because of policies that weren’t shaped by communities. It should reduce the growth of traffic congestion, protect our air and water, create new jobs and places to live, and ensure that all of Minnesota’s residents can get around. It should make our communities more vibrant and successful, connecting our region and shaping places that we are proud to call home. Transit for Livable Communities is calling for a new direction in transportation policymaking. Transportation should serve people, and more people should be involved in the transportation decisions that impact our communities. This new direction should remove the patchwork of policies that serve too few and instead advance a vision for a transportation system that advances the interests of all Minnesotans.
