Building an Effective Public Transit System

Baltimore County has a woeful public transportation network that neither serves the needs of community members nor those of business owners. Through her years working and traveling in communities abroad, Colleen has seen first-hand how an effective public transportation system can vitalize a community, creating job opportunities and increasing diversity while minimizing environmental impacts and increasing property values. As Councilwoman, Colleen will work to develop both a five-year and a ten-year plan to increase green public transit with more efficient bus and light rail services, more bike pathways throughout the county, including in rural and suburban areas, and more walking paths and sidewalks. Her vision of an effective public transportation network will inform her decision-making on zoning, public and private development, and budget allocations.
