(D) for me as well.

Used POE.

A - In spite of federal subsidizing of public transportation systems massively: massively doesn't make any sense here

B - In spite of massive federal subsidizing of public transportation systems and major efforts locally at persuading: locally is not used in the right context.

C - Despite massive federal subsidies to public transportation systems and the making of major efforts locally to persuade: making is redundant

E - Despite massive federal subsidies to public transportation systems and making major local efforts at persuading: making is redundant + "efforts at persuading" is not the most preferred usage.
