Community Transit Day

Dozens rallied at the state capital for the first ever 'Community Transit Day.'

The event brought together consumers, transit providers, and transporation officials to support expanding public transportation options around the state. They say a slightly larger contribution from the state would mean huge benefits for consumers.

Several lawmakers pledged their support for increasing state support.

David Jordan says,  "We have people that deserve and rightfully deserve and need transportation. Other states can do it, we don't have to be last."

Right now it's mostly the private sector and faith based groups that offer transportation services.
