Critical Transit Issues Confronting Us:

CRT Takes a Stand!


James Gordon, Treasurer, Citizens for Regional Transit
Douglas Funke, President, Citizens for Regional Transit


We are at a critical juncture on several issues that bear heavily on key transportation decisions. These include: (1) The role of transit for meeting the environmental requirements of the NYS Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) law; (2) how to meet the Kensington / Humboldt Parkway restoration goals in a way that
leverages transit; and (3) transit ‘s role for positioning WNY as a successful tourism destination and climate refuge region. There are key decisions and investments to be made in addressing these issues. CRT has taken strong positions on these issues that together form the foundation for a 21st century WNY transportation plan. We will summarize our positions and relate them to WNY’s future success.

Remembrance Ceremony Saturday, September 10
