Investing in our Infrastructure
Infrastructure is vital to the health of Hennepin County - and to the health of our economy and our residents. We cannot afford a 20th century network for 21st century needs, which is why I have been a fierce advocate for investing in a transportation network that works for everyone, whether you walk, bike, use transit or drive a car. We must look towards the future in how we invest in our transportation network.
Building out a truly multi-modal regional transit system that includes safer streets for pedestrians and bikers, and expanding our bus lines and light rail
Supporting Metro Transit operating budget with adequate funding for full operation of expanding system
Using Metro Transit as a partner not just in service but in equity by making Metro Mobility a human service funded by that budget, expanding livable wage transit careers for operators and mechanics, and making transit free for students
