Transit and freeways

The JS today opines on the importance of transit and advocates for a $10 wheel tax to support it until a better idea comes along.

There already is one out there.

The State Department of Transportation is proposing to spend at least $200 million to expand North-South I-94, even though, according to WisDOT, the expansion won't change traffic speeds along most of the corridor.

The JS should simply rescind its endorsement of freeway expansion and advocate that the $200 million be used for transit instead.
