Local transit union opposes Mayor Barrett’s streetcar plan… Union president admits plan does not connect people to jobs.

“A groundbreaking new study by the Brookings Institution found that less than half of all jobs in the region are reachable via transit within 90 miles. One-Third of working age residents do not even live near a transit stop. A streetcar is not going to help these people.” Lawrence J. Hanley, International President of Amalgamated Transit Union.
