Public transportation is now more important to our community than ever.  With gas prices almost at $4 per gallon, Central Floridians need transportation options in addition to the car.

You can help support public transportation by joining IM4Transit, a campaign sponsored by Florida’s 30 transit agencies to build a community of at least 100,000 transit supporters.  Members become eligible for monthly prize drawings.  There are three ways to show your support:

  • Visit and join the mailing list
  • Text your email address to 561-414-2805
  • Like IM4Transit on Facebook


  1. Sorry, but I try to avoid websites that play music by default.

  2. Speaking of fuel prices, I noticed Diesel has dropped nearly Thirty-Five cents per gallon in the last week. They’re messing with our minds!

    • Yeah, what a game. The nice part for me is, the last time I filled my car was March 30. I missed the highest prices.

  3. Our stinker has been parked since April, but only because the Rav4EV was out for service for that month. Fuel prices are too low, even at four bucks a gallon. I make that statement (usually to myself) when I see automobiles with the motors running, in parking lots where I shop. Fuel can’t be too expensive, if people are willing to burn it while standing in one place!

    Recently, I “discovered” Votran, Volusia County’s answer to mass transit a couple of months ago. It’s worked for me, even though most of the routes are once an hour(!) and three bucks for a daily pass. They allowed me to take on board my electric self balancing unicycle, so once off the bus, I have 12 miles range. I’d rather see public subsidies to such transportation systems than the subsidies that are keeping petroleum prices artificially reduced.
