President Trump’s infrastructure initiative plans to cut public
transit funding to pay for other infrastructure projects. His budget for 2019 proposes to cut funds for new rail and bus ways by 57%.
These devastating cuts to public transit would put our nation’s infrastructure on the wrong track. They delay or eliminate entirely spending on public transit expansion and cut funding for overdue repair and critical maintenance work. Furthermore, these cuts could threaten people’s access to jobs, medical services, education opportunities and more.
Congress must continue to invest in public transportation in their own infrastructure legislation.
