Conservatives and Public Transportation
Well, now I've found some other conservatives out there who are also supportive of public transit.
William Lind and the late Paul Weyrich compiled a collection of studies advocating public transit as an essential part of the conservative agenda. Why? Because public transit "enhances national security, promotes economic development, helps maintain conservative values including a sense of community, and provides welfare recipients with access to jobs."
Check out Moving Minds: Conservatives and Public Transportation by Paul Weyrich and William Lind.
Also, be sure to take a look at The American Conservative Center for Public Transportation.
