Went to the city of Alexandria's Strategic Planning meeting for Goal 3, which relates to transportation.
Two "quotes of the night", from one of the meeting attendees:
- (not verbatim, but close) Transit is a "social safety net" and is "equal opportunity". (made in response to a planned $600K cut from DASH)
- (verbatim) If it's not a dedicated bike lane, I'm afraid of traffic.
