Leggett said that promoting mass transit and maintaining an inclusive community it is the county’s highest priority.

“It is essential that we find a way for our residents to move around the County without a car. At the same time, we must make sure that mass transit is available to everyone, which is why we have made such strides in converting our bus stops so that they can be used by those with disabilities as well as those without,” Leggett said.
