					current travel times are often six times those of motorists — will not be able to get to work, doctors, schools, or job training programs. Preventing transit cuts will save thousands of jobs for transit passengers, often the people hovering just inches above the safety net. When bus riders lose their jobs and fall through the cracks, it results in a bigger financial strain to county and state social services. The decision to redirect OCTA-controlled funds back to transit will be tough, but it's the wisest investment OCTA can make in these turbulent economic times.
