There is a certain happiness sighted when your bus comes along. It is of course a small specialized form of happiness and will never be a great thing.

Transit Rally

Transit riders and others who appreciate the value of being able to leave their cars at home are invited to rally at the State Capitol on June 17 at 10 a.m. to protest Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's proposed theft of transit funds. This $18 million raid on Sacramento Regional Transit's revenue could force RT to reduce service another 10 percent. With gasoline prices heading for $5 a gallon, now is when the state should be helping transit agencies meet the new demand.

UPDATE: See Sacramento Regional Transit's announcement here and RT's Next Stop News for June.
