It seems there is a new campaign to get the attention of Florida’s elected officials when it comes to public transportation.
IM4Transit is a campaign of the Board of the Florida Public Transportation Association to identify, recruit, and mobilize at least 100,000 pro-transit Floridians.
If you support public transportation in Florida, go to www.im4transit.org/ and show your support. It would be nice to have 100,000 people tell Rick Scott want more transportation options. You can also go to Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/im4transit.
