A Petition to the Santa Cruz City Council

Please accept the plan developed by METRO staff to offer free bus passes to all workers in Downtown Santa Cruz, paid for by parking revenues. Bus passes are the key contributor in reducing rates of drive-alone commutes in places such as Downtown Seattle (25% drive alone) and Downtown Boulder (43% drive alone), compared to Downtown Santa Cruz (58% drive alone). Reducing drive-alone commutes frees up parking for customers at a much lower cost than new parking structures.
