We Did It! And We’re Pressing Forward

Thank you!
Thanks in large part to Voices for Public Transit, National Stand Up 4 Transportation Day delivered a wake-up call for members of Congress.

Here’s just a sample of what we accomplished:

  • Transportation advocates held more than 150 events in communities around the nation.

  • 22,425 supporters signed our petition, and our online “Thunderclap” reached more than 915,000 people on social media.

  • Voices for Public Transit like you sent 11,500 emails to members of Congress.

  • At least 60 people sent letters to the editor to their local news media.

  • More than 19,000 new supporters joined the Voices for Public Transit movement.

So What Happens Next?

One way or another, Congress must act before the Highway Trust Fund and Mass Transit Account run out of funding on May 31. The question is whether they will be able to set aside their differences and make a long-term federal investment in our transportation infrastructure.

We need to reinforce what Congress heard on April 9 by keeping the pressure on to pass comprehensive transportation legislation. Please watch for more opportunities to take action over the next six weeks.

Stand Up 4 Transportation Day was a huge success—and we hope you’ll continue working with us to keep Congress focused on the real goal— improved and expanded public transportation for every community.

Thank you again for your support!
