2. The Pittsburgh area is very dependent upon public transit

The last set of transit cuts caused overcrowded conditions and many delays. The last time I was in Pittsburgh, I saw a small sample of this myself - overcrowded light rail cars that took forever to arrive. This new set of cuts will make things many times worse.

In an older denser metropolitan area, transit is absolutely critical to get to work. Even if people had their own cars and even if there was capacity on the roads, there aren't enough parking spaces to get people where they need to go.

Transit is particularly important to support the Pittsburgh area's growing educational and health care job market. But why should Corbett care? - "those people" aren't going to vote Republican anyway.
