My name is Harold Leese and in a few weeks, I will be losing the public bus service I have largely due to state budget cuts to our cities. I rely on a car because I work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on a call basis. I tried to stop the busses from shutting down by trying to stop the state transit cuts and working with transit officials to get more riders, but leaders claim that taxes on fuel no longer work and transit advocate groups will not fight back.
In addition, state and regional leaders will not work to make small improvements that would get more riders and make transit taxes work better. I know very well that mass in Detroit and inner suburbs can work very well if we can just improve what we have. Please comment on my mass transit website at http://www.savethefueltax.org
