Send a Letter to the Editor: Tell Congress Public Transit Cuts Will Hurt America
President Trump’s proposed cuts to public transportation will have severe consequences in our local communities and across our nation. President Trump’s proposed cuts will:
Increase traffic congestion. Traffic congestion already costs our nation an estimated $160 billion annually in lost time and fuel, and it will only get worse without public transit investments.
Limit job creation. Every $1 billion invested in public transportation creates about 50,000 jobs, mostly in the private sector; that job creation will diminish without federal funding.
Undermine local economic development and property values. Public transit spurs local development and improves property values, both of which will suffer if the federal government abandons its support for public transportation.
