It is so "easy" for most of us to watch these cuts take place without comment. We often overlook the fact that there are people who RELY completely on public transportation--often working people without cars, senior citizens, young people. When cuts to transportation reduce people's ability to work, go to school, and shop, we are harming our community's vitality.

If Line 34 is cancelled, how will these people be served?
