Building Support for Transit Begins!

A day after the elections for city-wide offices in Durham, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Hillsborough several of our elected officials joined advocates for transit to publicly launch "DO Transit" - Durham Orange Friends of Transit.  Thanks to Gerry Cohen for posting info about the kick-off meeting here on OP and for being there last night to help explain House Bill 148.  The newly enacted legislation establishes the Congestion Relief and Intermodal Transportation 21st Century Fund, providing the Triangle with an unprecedented opportunity to build a robust transit system.  

Durham-Orange Friends of Transit organizing meeting

We need a strong grass roots effort for planning, education, and to get out the vote. To get the ball rolling, we are holding an organizational meeting of the Durham Orange Friends of Transit on November 4, 2009 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM at the Fellowship Hall at the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 4907 Garrett Road in Durham.

At this meeting we will get a briefing on all that has happened recently, appoint a steering committee, decide on our strategic approach, set up subcommittees and get ready for the campaign to bring transit to the Triangle.
