Starting off with a BANG

We’re off to a strong start in fighting to protect public transit from President Trump’s proposed budget cuts. Over April recess, Voices for Public Transit advocates told Congress in no uncertain terms that their constituents believe public transit needs to remain a priority for the federal government.

Here’s what you accomplished:

  • More than 18,000 emails sent to Congress
  • More than 990 letters to the editor submitted
  • More than 14,254 engagements on Facebook and Twitter
  • More than 190 advocates clicked to download our “Protect Public Transportation Funding” toolkits
  • More than 540 new members joined our community

Together, we’ve delivered our message through multiple channels and will continue to tell our members of Congress:

The economic consequences of public transit budget cuts would be devastating to American communities. Congress should honor its longstanding commitment to American public transportation by rejecting President Trump’s proposed cuts to public transit funding.

If you haven’t had a chance to add your voice to this effort, please take action now.

President Trump is expected to release his full budget proposal soon — and the budget process will continue for several months.
