The nonprofit Arizona Town Hall wants to hear from people who known a thing or two about transportation issues in the state—i.e. bus riders effected by a certain bus strike that is close to hitting the 30 day mark.

The talks aren't just happening in Tucson but throughout Arizona with the purpose of getting citizens involved, and identifying "solutions for critical policy and economic issues" that stem from private and public transportation.

“The overall theme for each forum is exploring how the current transportation system is intimately interwoven and has impact on key factors such as the economy, jobs, community, health, lifestyle, education, housing and certainly, the environment. Through the community forums, we want to inform Arizona citizens of research and recommendations which came from the 106th statewide Town Hall..." said Tara Jackson, president of Arizona Town Hall, in a statement to the media. "We want to hear from people who are affected by transportation issues. Those range all the way from concerns about roads and infrastructure to thoughts about public transportation, or transportation’s impact on the environment. We want the report to represent people, in the true spirit of a Town Hall which reflects consensus from the broad spectrum of the public."

Comments gathered at the forums will then be distributed to state legislators, the public and others.

“It’s important that those in policy-making or decision-making positions of influence to hear what the people who are affected by those decisions really think,” Jackson's statement said. 

To register, visit www.aztownhall.org, or call the Arizona Town Hall office at 602-252-9600. 

The forum takes place Wednesday, Sept. 30 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Pima Community College's Community Campus, 401 N. Bonita Ave., Room A-109/A-112.
