You may want to contact your member of Congress.  This could impact everyone who depends on  public transit.

Julie, 

We need you to call your U.S. Representative immediately to help stop public transit from being eliminated from the Highway Trust Fund. 

Call (888) 443-5862 TODAY to speak with your Representative’s office! 

We are so close to getting multi-year funding for public transit passed by Congress, but we have just run into a potentially disastrous hurdle. 

A few members of Congress are trying to amend the new Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act so that public transit will no longer be included in the Highway Trust Fund. 

What does this mean? If these amendments pass, it means public transit will not receive federal funding. 

This is a worst-case scenario, and we only have a few hours to keep it from coming to pass. Your Representative needs to hear from you ASAP. 

Now is our chance to tell them: Make sure public transportation is funded at least as much as outlined in the Senate version of the bill. We have to make it clear to Congress that America wants increased funding for public transit. 

Please call (888) 443-5862 right now. The call is free and will only take a few minutes of your time. 

Thank you,
