PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

In the State of Georgia, especially in rural communities, if you don't have access to a car or truck, you can't get anywhere. You can't get to work, school, or the store without relying on the kindness (and scheduling) of a friend with a car.

 

My grandpa tells me stories about how he would take a train a few towns over to visit his aunt and uncle when he was a kid. Why is it that in a state that once had a great public transportation system, owning a vehicle is now a necessity? One of my top priorities, if elected, will be to expand access to buses and rail to connect our state and ease the congestion of our roads.
