Ask your representative to provide real alternatives to driving & high gas prices

The picture is the same everywhere you look. You’ve been reading it here, in your newspaper, or watching it on the television nearly nonstop for the last few weeks:

Gas is expensive, driving is down, transit systems are packed.

Here in D.C., people are abandoning their cars and taking Metro in record numbers to save money and get where they need to go reliably each day. They can count themselves lucky to have that option. Most Americans don’t have options like Metro for relief. They don’t have access to convenient public transportation or live in walkable, connected neighborhoods. For years, we’ve under-invested in these solutions, and now we’re paying the price as fuel prices rise by the day and thousands or millions are wondering why they don’t have some other affordable alternative to driving everyday.
