A message to the public

As Americans age, as income earners work, and lastly as our youth come to rely more on public transportation for educational services, it is important that public transportation remain solid in the community.  Protect your services by contacting your legislators and local elected officials letting them know about your need for affordable public transportation services in the community.

It is critical for transportation as we know it in our communities to let our elected officials know and understand that funding is critical to growing public transportation to meet the needs of our community.  Without your voice in Washington, D.C. the message may not be heard adequately to save this critical infrastructure in your community.  Let your voice be heard by contacting the below elected officials to voice your concerns for public transportation.
