Public transit is essential for Pennsylvanians – It keeps us moving to jobs, food, and healthcare. But state transportation funding is in jeopardy. But politicians have left transit riders and transit workers out of conversations about a solution.

Transit riders and workers won’t stand for another round of service cuts, fare hikes, and layoffs! We are organizing with riders and workers from all across Pennsylvania. We will build a grassroots vision for expanding transit in our state – and we need you!

Statewide Organizing Meeting to Expand PA Transit Funding
Wednesday // March 24th
7pm – 8:30pm

We need all Pennsyvania transt riders and workers to attend this meeting for expanded, progressive transit funding in PA. Together we can build a proposal that puts transit riders and workers first. We will win more service, increased frequency, cleaner bus, better bus stops, affordable housing, higher wages and more.

We will mobilize transit riders and workers.
We will sway politicians.
We will shift the public narrative.
We will win expanded transit funding to keep our buses running and transform our cities for our children.

Join us at this first Statewide Campaign Meeting of Transit Riders and Workers to begin this journey together
