FRIDAY - We Did It!

CONGRATULATIONS, Voices for Public Transit!

Congress has sent a fully funded, five-year transportation bill that increases public transit funding for communities of all sizes to President Obama. Both the House and Senate passed the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) by wide bipartisan margins, and we expect the President will sign it today.

We’ve been working toward this goal for the past two years, and we couldn’t have succeeded without your hard work, especially over the past few months. Your emails, personal letters, and phone calls made a huge difference—your members of Congress knew this was something their voters wanted to see happen for the benefit of all Americans.

More updates about what this means for public transportation across the nation will be coming—and we’re planning to ring in the New Year with a big celebration in January. For now, please enjoy the victory. It belongs to all of us.

With deepest thanks,

Mantill Williams
Voices for Public Transit Community Coordinator
