 Transportation Action

Say YES to Transit. Sign the National Public Transportation Petition Today.

Across the state, it's the same story for transit agencies -- falling
revenues, fare hikes and service cuts. Our agencies are being hit
particularly hard because most of their taxing authority comes from local
sales taxes, which have seen precipitous drops as a result of the economic
downtown. Act now and urge Congress to pass a long-term public
transportation bill that increases investment in transportation:

Signing the Petition has taken an even greater sense of urgency since
President Obama's call to enact a new, six-year transit and highway
authorization bill. The transportation funds in this bill will allow for a
continuation and expansion of vital programs to upgrade or replace
infrastructure, facilities and systems, as well as provide improvements for
the riding environment of public transit users.

Act now. The National Public Transportation Petition will be presented by
industry leaders on September 22 at an event in Washington, D.C. to
highlight to Congress the importance of public transportation across the
country. We cannot delay any longer -- urge Congress for swift action and
keep public transit investment on the national stage.
