PA Statewide Transit Riders Meeting re Covid-19

PPT & the Philly Transit Riders Union are holding the first-ever statewide transit riders call to organize around our Covid-19 response

The Covid-19 outbreak has shown that public transit is indeed the lifeblood of our cities and state – moving frontline workers and riders to life’s essentials; jobs, food, healthcare, and more. If our state is going to recover from this difficult time and build back better then before, it will need to center public transit and the needs of its riders and workers.

Transit riders and workers across PA are ready to do this work.

RSVP below to join Pittsburghers for Public Transit and the Philly Transit Riders Union for this first statewide transit rider organizing call to share experiences, build solidarity, and strategize about winning campaigns for better transit in PA.

Wednesday, 4/15 // 6pm Social Hour // 7-8:30pm Virtual Meeting

Draft Agenda:
– Experiences of PA transit riders & transit workers during Covid-19
– What PA transit agencies have done in response to Covid-19
– How can transit riders support transit workers in these times
– How can we organize together to emerge from this crisis with even stronger transit systems to better support our communities

The call will be held via Zoom. Attendees can join from a phone or computer. For questions on how to join the meeting, how to use Zoom, or other accessibility needs, contact Josh at 412-607-7726 or
