Guest Column By Louise Shawkat, Assland Daily Tidings, February 3rd 2020
The wheels on the bus go round and round …
And for whom do they rotate?
In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat. Parks has become the catalyst for Transit Equity Day. We can participate in Transit Equity Day at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, in the Ashland Public Library in a program sponsored by Southern Oregon Climate Action Now’s Ashland Action team.
At least 100 million people drive to work; 27 minutes is their average one-way commute. Meanwhile, only 7 million of us use public transit.
