Description
The Wayne Hultgren papers contain material pertaining to Hultgren's work with the Modern Transit Society (MTS) and his efforts to bring light rail to Sacramento. In addition to the MTS, Hultgren was involved with the Light Rail Transit Advocates, North East Transportation Taskforce (NETTF), American Lung Association and the Sacramento Regional Area Planning Commission.
Background
The Modern Transit Society (MTS) and papers affiliated with this organization through Wayne Hultgren's involvement constitute the majority of information for this collection. Fighting for clean, health conscious, reliable, safe and inexpensive transporation alternatives, including improved bus service and multi-destination light rail system, represent the primary function of this non-profit organization founded in 1971 in Santa Clara County, California. Their mission statement explains that the Modern Transit Society exists to promote transporation solutions to traffic congestion that benefit all modes of transportation through clean and safe public mobility. Additionally, MTS works to educate the public, infrastructure planners, and politicians in transporation matters by advocating transit alternatives to the automobile. MTS recognized the importance of politics and getting key organizational agencies such as the Sacramento City Council on their side in the fight for improved transportation systems.
