Are You “On Board” for Public Transportation?
Show Congress the 1-2-3 of Why Public Transit Matters
Save the Date! April 25 is national “Get on Board” Day. So what exactly is “Get On Board Day” and what does it mean for you? Great question!
Public transit systems and mobility champions will be uniting to raise awareness about the importance of public transportation. We’ll be highlighting the economic, social, cultural, and safety benefits of public transportation—and why we all need to “Get On Board” when it comes to investing to improve and expand public transportation in communities large and small.
You already know public transit matters at three key levels: personally, for local communities, and for the nation as a whole. Together, those stories—the personal, community-wide, and national—make up the 1-2-3 of why public transit matters, and each plays a role as we work to show the new Congress why they need to keep public transportation at the forefront in their infrastructure and transportation discussions.
