On March 16, President Trump released his initial budget proposal for 2018 — and the outlook for public transportation is devastating.
The President has proposed severe cuts to public transportation that would truly put our nation on the wrong track. His budget could effectively halt spending on expansions of American public transit and cut funding for overdue repair and critical maintenance work.
The proposed budget does not align with the infrastructure goals President Trump laid out during his campaign. He vowed to invest $1 trillion in American infrastructure, including public transit. It simply makes no sense to promise to improve transportation and then propose severe budget cuts.
We need Congress to reject the President’s proposed funding cuts. Please email your Members of Congress and ask them to champion public transit.
