Pittsburghers for Public Transit

🗣️"1 trip! 2 trip ! 3 trip! 4! Why are poor folks paying more"

Through the last 6-weeks, Riders led a campaign to collect over 2,500 signatures in support of three easy #FareEquity policies:

1. Fare Capping (to allow daily/weekly/monthly/yearly bus passes to be paid for one ride at a time)
2. Free Transfers
3. Remove the penalty for cash payment

On December 7th, 2018 we rallied to present these signatures and our testimony to the Port Authority of Allegheny County board of directors ,calling on them to #MakeOurFaresFair.

Huge thanks to all the riders and volunteers who rallied, gave testimony, collected signatures, made phone calls, created signs and made up chants! Thx to Just Harvest and Mon Valley Initiative for your partnership on the campaign. #StrongerTogether

We will continue to fight for equity in our system until all have the access they deserve.
