Pennsylvania's public transit is on the edge of disaster. Transit ridership has cratered during the COVID-19 crisis and transit agencies are bleeding millions of dollars weekly. Essential transit riders are struggling between paying fares, rent, childcare and food. And frontline transit workers are risking their lives every day.
Congress needs to invest the $32 billion to address the projected shortfall. Without it, riders and workers will suffer from fare hikes, layoffs, service cuts, and shutdowns.
Transit riders and transit workers from across PA are coming together for some real-talk with Senator Bob Casey about the transit crisis. He needs to stand on the Senate floor as a transit champion and pass $32B for transit to move us all past Covid-19.
