Speak Up for Public Transportation

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: Have You Told Your Friends to Speak Up?
From: Mantill Williams



July 31 is the hard deadline. On that day, federal transportation funding runs dry.

The Highway Trust Fund’s Mass Transit Account is the primary source of funding for American public transportation. Without these dollars, even maintenance on buses and rail systems can be impacted. And we won’t see improvements and expansion.

We need a long-term solution—not another short-term, temporary fix.

Are your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers speaking out?

Please encourage them to take action.

We need as many voices as possible telling Congress that public transportation funding must be a top priority. Help us keep the pressure on so Congress realizes it’s unacceptable for them not to make a long-term investment in public transit this year.

Thank you,
