Increase state funding for Ohio public transit sign now

Increase State of Ohio Funding for Public Transit

State of Ohio funding for public transit has been reduced by 75\% since 2001. While the typical state in the nation provides 23\% of the funding needed for the transit systems in their state, Ohio provides less than 3\%. While the citizens in Ohio have repeatedly stated that a more comprehensive public transit network is needed just to meet their basic needs to get to jobs, school and medical appointments, transit funding cuts have forced many transit systems to reduce critically needed transit service and to raise fares. This petition urges the State of Ohio to identify a reliable, adequate and dedicated funding source for public transit, and to identify an immediate source of emergency funds to preserve existing services.
