Americans for Transit’s mission is to strengthen, create, and unite grassroots transit rider organizations 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. While demand for transit continues to increase, bus and train riders are left stranded. We won’t stand for more service cuts and fare increases. Across America we need more affordable public transportation; not less.
