Transit is a vital economic lifeline for millions of Americans workers, students, persons with disabilities and senior citizens. Yet many agencies across the country are slashing services, eliminating routes, and raising fares, leaving many stranded and without access to employment, schools, health care and community services. This lack of mobility is one of the major economic, environmental and social justice issues today.
Americans for Transit mission is to build a national coalition of transit rider advocates across the United States. We aim to create a big-tent coalition of transit riders and supporters to address the pressing transit funding crisis in America. We are the only national organization solely focused on supporting and strengthening the work of local transit advocacy groups.
Across America we need more affordable public transportation; not less. Together, we can build a movement to implement change in our communities.
