The realities...

  • Ridership down 35% since 2007 as more jobs move to areas not served by transit 
  • UC Economics Center study identified 25,000 manufacturing and 50,000 healthcare jobs not adequately served by transit
  • Metro operating costs are increasing faster than revenue
  • Metro is facing deficits of $2.5 million in its operating and $21 million in its capital budgets in 2018
  • A budget deficit is projected every year beginning in 2018

If we do nothing...

  • Services may be reduced
  • Metro could seek a fare increase
  • More people might be cut off from jobs, school, shopping and medical appointments
