Our weekly program, Making Democracy Work, is a collaboration between KSMU Radio and the League of Women Voters of Southwest Missouri. It's hosted and produced by volunteers from the LWV, and it airs each Monday morning at 9:45 a.m. on KSMU. 

In this episode of our local program Making Democracy Work, host Maggie Castrey speaks with Matt Crawford, director of transit with City Utilities.

Crawford discusses the Connect SGF project related to short and long-term goals for the Springfield bus transit system. He discusses the benefits to Springfield maintaining and improving the local transit system and explores funding, safety and community support.
