Governor Kaine's transportation plan meetings

Governor Kaine released details about his transportation plan today. I found no references to bicycles, bike lanes, or non-motorized transportation:

“Governor Timothy M. Kaine today released details of his transportation plan and called for a special session of the General Assembly to address transportation on June 23. The Governor's plan fills our growing road and bridge maintenance deficit to promote safety, provides relief for regional transportation needs, and invests in innovative approaches to Virginia's transportation challenges. The plan raises over $1 billion annually by fiscal year 2012 and contains no gas tax increase.”

“The Governor's Transportation Change Fund will increase investment in transit, rail, and innovative solutions to reduce traffic congestion like teleworking and ridesharing. Three-quarters of the Transportation Change fund will be dedicated to transit and rail projects, increasing transit and rail investment by over 30%. The fund also makes dollars available for transportation projects to support economic development through aviation, port, and innovative highway investments.”

Why not attend one of his Town Hall meetings and tell him that you want funds dedicated to bicycle projects. And why not ask that a gas tax be implemented with dedicated funds going to bike projects. There is a meeting on Tuesday:

Tuesday, May 13 — Woodbridge

When: 7:00 P.M — 8:30 P.M.
Where: Dr. A.J. Ferlazzo Building Auditorium
15941 Donald Curtis Drive
Woodbridge, Virginia
