Let there be no mistake: private tech companies are not here to enhance transit equity for our communities, they are here to make money.

Transit should be a human right, and not a means to siphon public dollars into private coffers. We need to hold our public officials accountable for spending public dollars on public transit. Not on ride hailing. Not on autonomous vehicles or on-demand shuttles. Not hyperloop. Not scooters or #micromobility trends.

A tech-driven future is not an equitable future for all.
