So why do we need buses? Who rides the bus?

Well, I’ll tell you. Seniors who can no longer drive. College students trying to work and go to school. The working and poor who can’t afford a car and insurance. Disabled people who have no other way to get out and be a part of society. Young women with children trying to get the necessities of life. Mentally ill people on their way to treatment.

So why do we need buses? Figure it out. Vote yes on Pierce Transit Proposition 1.
