Pittsburghers for Public Transit

We are a grassroots organization of riders, drivers, and advocates working to defend and expand public transit. We believe that transit is a human right: everyone should have access to safe, affordable, and environmentally-sustainable transit operated by union drivers paid living wages. Join us in keeping the public in public transit!

Our Campaigns

Find out more about communities that have mobilized to restore bus service in transit deserts, the campaign for affordable housing near good transit, and the fight for equity with the BRT and Proof of Payment proposals.
