New transportation investments are needed throughout San Luis Obispo County.
State and federal transportation funding has dropped severely in recent years, with once dependable funds becoming increasingly unreliable. Therefore, revenues available to operate, maintain and improve our local transportation system have not kept up with the needs of our community. Over the next decade, SLO County’s population will continue to grow and our senior population will almost triple. This means that without a solution, we will experience more demand on our streets, highways and transit. We will lose job opportunities, experience increased traffic on degraded streets and highways, suffer service cuts on buses and see more costly transportation services for youth, seniors and people with disabilities.
A new, reliable source of transportation funding is needed for our communities and quality of life.
