Growth advocates see the benefits of #publictrransit

Sacramento Bee: "Steinberg said that the $3.6 billion in revenue expected from Measure B is vital to economic development both for the city and region, and also plays into livability and environmental goals for the growing downtown area – where popularizing public transportation has become a key objective.
If Measure B passes, 70 percent of revenue would go to road projects such as repaving streets and filling potholes. Others would include new interchanges, widening roads, and bike and pedestrian improvements.

Thirty percent of Measure B revenue would go to public transit, including Sacramento Regional Transit, which operates buses and light-rail trains."
