The Administration’s new infrastructure initiative and proposed budget recommend deep cuts to public transit funding. In 2015, Congress united to support public transportation, passing the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act by strong bipartisan votes.

Supporters of public transit must come together, cut through the noise and tell Congress to protect public transportation funding.
