We’re a nationwide advocacy movement dedicated to keeping America moving forward by expanding public transportation in communities across the country.

We launched Voices for Public Transit to help transform America’s public transportation network into the truly flexible, accessible, sustainable mobility resource it can and should be—and that every community deserves.

Millions of Americans use public transportation every day to meet needs and pursue opportunities. Public transit connects people to jobs, education, healthcare, and one another. And public transit helps reduce pollution, conserve energy, fight traffic congestion, and power local economies.

The bottom line: Public transportation gets all of US where we need to go, even if we don’t ride.

Our bipartisan movement includes people all across the country, in every state, who are raising their voices to realize a vision of strong communities supported by robust, efficient transportation systems anchored in public transit. We’re carrying our message to friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers—and to elected officials at all levels of government.

Voices for Public Transit is a project of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA).


Explore the benefits of public transportation: job creation and economic growth, reduced air pollution and traffic congestion, and greater opportunity for all Americans.
