Our public transit system is facing the most drastic cuts in service to date!
POTENTIAL LOSS OF 35% OF SERVICE, 50% OF ROUTES AND 500 JOBS
Take action to fight for public investment in transportation and demand that corporations pay there “fare” share. Pittsburghers for Public Transit, ATU Local 85, and Occupy Pittsburgh will be rallying outside of the public comment hearings at the David Lawrence Convention Center on Wednesday February 29th at Noon to demand that the proposed cuts be rejected and that a permanent solution to the funding crisis facing public transit be found!
During the rest of the day, the Port Authority will hold a public hearing on the proposed cuts from 8 am to 8 pm at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Downtown Pittsburgh. To register for a 3 minute slot to make testimony, call 412.566.5437 (TTY 412.231.7007) from 9 am to 3:30 pm on weekdays.
