Time to Rally for Public Transit
October 10, 2017
Today, the RTA is joining transit agencies and advocates across the country and urging Congress to support public transit funding in the federal budget and federal infrastructure legislation.
We are calling for Congress to renew our nation’s historic commitment to public transportation in the upcoming budget. The Administration and some members of Congress have proposed cuts to public transportation that could stall or undermine current and future public transit projects. We must tell Congress that cuts to public transportation will hurt American communities and our economy, cost jobs, reduce public safety, and increase traffic congestion.
Our system provides two million rides each weekday. It's time to make our voices heard!
We’re asking advocates to take multiple actions so we can turn up the volume and make our message heard.
