April 9 is national Stand Up for Transportation Day, which will bring together transportation supporters all around the country to call—in unison—for Congress to pass meaningful transportation legislation.
As Voices for Public Transit, we need to make as much noise as possible to show Congress that America wants a long-term federal funding commitment to improving our transportation infrastructure, including public transportation.
Our goal is to deliver thousands and thousands of petition signatures to Congress on April 9—and follow up those signatures with emails, letters to the editor, questions at town hall meetings, and more.
If we show enough support, Congress will have to act.
Momentum is building. Let’s keep moving forward.
Voices for Public Transit
Whether you ride or not, public transportation benefits all of us. It reduces pollution, eases traffic congestion, and helps our communities thrive. In cities, suburbs, and rural America, public transit provides vital connections to jobs, education, medical care, and our larger communities. Help us keep America moving.
