public transit cycle

The following is a cycle that has taken place in Allegheny Co. over the past 35-40 years:
apathetic support from citizens/business'>inadequate political will>lack of dedicated funding support for mass transit>service ineficiencies/cuts>declining ridership>apathetic support from citizens/business'>inadequate political will>lack of dedicated funding support for mass transit>service ineficiences/cuts>and again...

The cycle does not start in any one place so we shouldn't point the finger at any one person.

Our aim should be to reverse the cycle:
strong support from citizens/business'>political will>dedicated funding suppport>service efficiencies acheived>increased ridership>strong support from citizens/business'>political will>dedicated funding suppport>services efficiencies acheived>increased ridership>and again...
