Car-Obsessed California Seeks to Follow New York’s Lead and Save Public Transit

From an AP story by Jeff McMurray and Adam Beam headlined “Car-obsessed California seeks to follow New York’s lead and save public transit”:

Sadaf Zahoor has bucked California’s car culture by never owning one, yet she and other residents who rely on public transit worry its bleak financial outlook could soon leave them standing at empty train stations and bus stops.

The agencies running the public transit systems, particularly in San Francisco and Oakland, California, where Zahoor lives, have been living off billions of dollars in federal aid that will soon expire.
