Support smart transportation planning in Georgia.

You can take action on this alert by reading the information below and following the directions at the bottom.

Issue

Governor Perdue is soliciting public comment on the transportation challenges facing Georgia. Strong public support for expanding transit options, bike paths and sidewalks will show Governor Perdue that Georgians want more transportation choices.

Background

In this year's State of the Air Report published by the American Lung Association, Augusta, Columbus, Macon and Rome joined the Atlanta area on the list of 25 worst U.S. cities for year-round fine particle pollution - a pollutant linked to respiratory and heart diseases and even premature death. Roadways are a major source of particle pollution and with gas prices at record highs, Georgians want alternatives to driving to save money and avoid unhealthy commutes.

With rising gas prices, more and more residents choose transit. Many people, however, have no good transit options for getting to their places of work and recreation. Show your support for transit solutions to congestion, high gas prices and unhealthy air.
