All Transportation is Hyper-Local

Transit Center: All Transportation is Hyper-LocalMost community planning bodies are advisory, while in other cases, individuals are taking this step themselves. Kishan is a long-time bus and neighborhood activist, the kind of guy who knows his neighbors by name. A rider himself, Kishan decided to run for the Dupont ANC. He couldn’t think of a better place to campaign for votes than the bus stops swarming with frustrated locals. When asked what improvements would make the neighborhood a better place to live, people naturally complained about poor local bus service. “They said, ‘You want to fix the neighborhood? Start by fixing the buses!’” he explained. It turns out campaigning at bus stops on a platform of bus improvements is a winning electoral strategy; Kishan won handily in a three-person race.
