Stand Up For Transportation Day April 9

April 6, 2015

Public transportation benefits everyone -- even if you don't ride. Transit reduces traffic congestion, helps the environment and connects people to jobs, education, shops and the community.

In order to keep public transportation running smoothly, quality infrastructure and preventive maintenance is needed to support it. This means having well maintained roads, well-lit streets and sidewalks, traffic signals and signs, bike lanes and bus shelters.

For the past several years, Congress has only approved short-term, inconsistent funding for infrastructure. Long-term funding is needed to repair, maintain and expand transportation, roads, bridges and rail systems.

On Thursday, April 9, Stand Up 4 Transportation and join people from around the Country in telling Congress that now is the time to invest long term in America's transportation network. Learn more and sign a petition at www.standup4transportation.org.
