Ohio is considering a gas-tax increase. Will public transit, bicyclists and pedestrians get a cut? (War on Cars Watch)

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine got a Valentine’s Day request from 36 Ohio transportation groups.

The ask: $150 million in the next budget cycle.

The groups sent a letter to DeWine, who has made transportation infrastructure funding one of his top priorities.

Signees include Cincinnati’s Better Bus Coalition, the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 627, which represents Cincinnati bus drivers, and MOVE Ohio – all groups fed up by a push for more infrastructure funding that seems to exclude public transit, bicyclists and pedestrians.

“While your priorities must include funding to maintain safe roads and bridges, Ohio needs more,” the letter states.
