Whereas, Minnesota's transportation system needs immediate attention to improve bicycling and walking connections, expand our bus and rail options, replace deficient bridges, and improve congested roads;

Whereas, Minnesotans need more equitable access to transportation options that connect us to jobs, housing, education, and services;

Whereas, our current transportation system adversely affects our economic competitiveness, air and water quality, and quality of life;

Whereas, building out the metro-area transit system would save billions in reduced travel time for individuals and businesses;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Minnesota's leaders support investment in a more balanced, multi-modal transportation system that is racially just, economically competitive, promotes a healthy lifestyle, and is safer and more accessible for all users, of all ages and abilities.
