Encourage Marana to ante up for bus transportation

Recent press coverage mentions requests that the Town of Marana provide approximately $189K for bus transportation to the town, including the CRCA area (Sun Tran/Van Tran, I believe.)  In light of current outrageous gas prices and environmental concerns, CRCA should encourage ToM to provide this support.  Many CRCA residents currently use the park’n’ride services and many more would if the services were expanded.  The town has reached a stage in its growth where public transportation is a viable alternative, the budget can support such a reasonable share of cost and the town should pay its rightful share of such services; certainly a more appropraite use of funds than hanging banners year-round from light posts.  CRCA, while not a political entity, should nevertheless encourage ToM to act proactively in this matter.
