Mapping Cuts in Mass Transit

Via Matt Yglesias, Transportation for America has put together an interactive map showing the cities around the country where the recession has caused cutbacks in service that aren't addressed in the stimulus bill as it's currently constituted. This is stuff that could easily be funded, would stimulate the economy right now, and would disproportionately benefit the economically hardest-hit. In short, there's no reason these things shouldn't be covered by the stimulus.
