A transit advocacy group -- affectionately known as the 'transit nerds' -- are making themselves heard, and changing transit policy.
"From Los Angeles -- home of the nation's worst traffic -- to cities such as Seattle, St. Louis, San Francisco and Phoenix, well-organized transit advocacy groups have formed, some operating with no funding... They're an eclectic bunch. Among the inner circle are urban planners, lawyers and inventors from the Crenshaw district, middle-class mothers from Santa Monica, businesswomen from Cheviot Hills, train buffs, bus riders, filmmakers, teachers and political aides... They are so single-minded, and pay such detailed attention to arcane transit data, that they sometimes self-deprecatingly call themselves 'the transit nerds.'"
