When told that the Port Authority has proposed a cut in service frequency to the 61C, Derek Gordon, who works for the Steelers, said: “This is my only way to work!” He has a flex schedule, and service frequency is important for being able to plan his commute from day to day.
Along with our partner Just Harvest in this campaign for equitable access to jobs, food, healthcare, and other critical needs, we want to share your stories of how 61ABC buses are important to you.
Please tweet @JustHarvest or @Pgh4PubTransit or share your photos and comments with us on Facebook. And you can help start building solidarity between all your stories with the hashtags #WhoseBRT #OURpublictransit.
And please pass the word on about the rally and press conference this coming Friday, January 26th, at 8:45am at the corner of Wood St. and 6th Ave! The Port Authority board meeting will start at 9:30am at 345 6th Ave and many riders, drivers, small business owners, social service organizations, and many, many more will be speaking out together!
