- Transit is also an environmental solution to global warming air pollution; growing transit use is the best way the United States can reduce tailpipe emissions, our fastest-growing source of greenhouse gas emissions.
- Transit is also critical to revitalizing our cities, older suburbs, and rural towns, linking workers to employment opportunity and affordable housing. It is critical to making our country more resilient to energy price shocks and to sustainably growing our economy long-term.
- However, only through grassroots rider organizing will our voices be heard and the transit crisis in America be reversed. Therefore, [Name of Organization] joins Americans for Transit to build a strong national movement of organized transit riders and coalition partners.
