Pittsburgh media was eager to cover the release of PPT’s new Beyond the East Busway participatory transit planning tool. Within hours, 5 local outlets had covered the release and dozens of people had completed the tool. We’re encouraged to have this coverage. This grassroots participation is what we need to drive transit expansion in our region.
PPT is encouraging all people who live and take transit through the Mon Valley and Eastern Suburbs to complete the tool and share it with their neighbors. Follow this link to take action: BIT.LY/EASTBUSWAY
