Got Transit? Share your story

If public transit impacts your life (and it does, you just may not realize it), you can share your story here with the American Public Transit Association.

The APTA site also has a nice summary of all the lovely things public transit provides:

 

  • Boosts local and national economic growth
  • Connects people to jobs, education, and other community services
  • Creates opportunities for people who might not otherwise have them
  • Creates opportunities for people who might not otherwise have them
  • Reduces air pollution
  • Eases traffic congestion

It’s something we may not think about often, but access to transit is absolutely crucial for our communities. Once I started paying attention to it, it was amazing to me just how important it is to have a way to move people around safely, affordably and economically (read: not in cars). Unfortunately, the people who need it the most are often unable to advocate for it, and it’s something we have to fight for to get funding and support from at local, state and federal levels.

You can change the world. It starts with annoying telling your elected officials that access to public and alternative transit is a priority.
