Transit Day is May 9th!

To draw attention to this crucial public infrastructure, both the Pittsburgh City Council and Allegheny County Council will be proclaiming May 9th to be Transit Day!

To celebrate our public transit system, Josh Verbanets of local band Meeting of Important People will rock Market Square at noon on May 9th, along with GoBurgh, Pittsburghers for Public Transit, the ATU, the Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network, the Committee for Accessible Transit and many other coalition partner community organizations and businesses.

Speakers will include County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, ATU Local 85 President Steve Palonis, and State Senators Jay Costa (D) and Randy Vulakovich (R).

GoBurgh and Pittsburghers for Public Transit invite all transit supporters to join us for music and rally to call on all our elected officials at both local and state levels to support the public transit so crucial to the health of our communities!
