Tell Congress: Transit needs more immediate assistance

Transit is still facing an economic apocalypse. As millions continue following directives to stay home from work and school, public transportation ridership has flatlined, taking fare revenues with it. Combined with increased costs for additional cleaning and with the economy quickly coming to a halt, all of the funding sources that sustain our transit systems have evaporated, even as many essential workers and others continue to rely on it. Agencies large and small are hemorrhaging.

After an outpouring of vocal support for transit, Congress gave transit agencies $25 billion in direct emergency operating assistance in the CARES Act. That was a good start, but in the months since it has become clear that the transit systems our economies depend on—even in crisis—will need more support to survive.

As states and transit agencies plan for a new normal, tell Congress that $32 billion in emergency operating support for transit must be included in the next relief package. Transit is essential; this support cannot wait.
