Islanders should vote yes on Proposition 1. Prop. 1 on the ballot would preserve existing bus service on the island and raise funds for needed road maintenance on county roads. If the measure fails, routes 118 and 119 along with more than 100 routes will have their service reduced, while 74 routes will be eliminated entirely, gutting our regional mass-transit system.
