The people of Houston voted in 2003 to build a five-line high-quality transit system, but that deployment has been blocked by Congressman John Culberson and a small band of anti-transit radicals for too long. Houston is building the best modern light rail system in the nation in terms of ridership per mile and the Uptown and University lines will join Main Street in leading the nation in reliable, convenient transit service.
This attack against Houston's future transit options must stop. The delays on completing this initial system also are delaying the further deployment of high quality transit service throughout the region. A majority of people of the region want better transit and want high quality light rail transit. We're wasting time and money; every year we wait drives the cost up.
Let's do this, Houston.
Let's finish our 2003 transit system.

Finally, Houston Tomorrow is a small nonprofit and we are going to have to raise some funds to sustain this fight. The size and scope of the campaign we can wage will be determined by how much support we get from people like you.
