Dear [Decision Maker],

Transportation is the vital link that connects older adults to social activity, economic opportunity, and essential health and community services. The vast majority of people want to remain in their own homes and communities as they age. Without a range of safe, accessible, dependable, and affordable transportation options including alternatives to driving, this will become increasingly difficult whether one lives in an urban, suburban, or rural community. Please reject budget proposals that would reduce Metro Transit funding and lead to cuts to services and fare increases.



While the potential cuts may not affect everyone everyone, I ask that you stand up for people who rely on these transit services each and every day.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
