In 2021, PPT members brought both the SHELTER and the STORM! Join us to celebrate a year of successful (and hard-fought) transit organizing.
In 2021, PPT members brought both the SHELTER and the STORM.
This year was hard – the crushing effects of the pandemic, a transit death spiral, a transit funding cliff. Jobs and housing lost. PPT members had to organize together to provide shelter for our neighbors and communities. But we didn’t stop there.
Our organizing was a FORCE. We launched a statewide campaign for expanded transit funding. We built a base to put a pro-public transit mayor in office. We laid the groundwork for a low-income fare program. We continued our push to extend the East Busway and we WON MILLIONS of federal dollars that can make it all real!
