Jonah: Without Transit, My Mom Would Have to Drive Me

Jonah lives in Spokane and relies on public transit.

Hear why he thinks Tim Eyman’s Initiative 976 is such a bad deal for Washington.

On the November 5th ballot, Tim Eyman’s Initiative 976 would devastate our already strained transportation system by cutting funding for road and transit projects from Spokane to Seattle, Bremerton to Zillah and all points in between.

In Washington State, 12.8 percent of our population has a disability that impacts our ability to access transportation. Of those of us with travel-limiting disabilities, only one-fifth of us who are working age report working full or part time. A big part of this is because of the barriers we face in transportation access. We experience significant barriers in vehicle ownership, trip frequency and socio-economic status.
